City of San Deigo Retirement Benefits

Employees of the City of San Diego working half-time or greater are required to join the SDCERS defined benefit plan. A defined benefit plan is a retirement plan in which you make contributions throughout your career, and which guarantees you a benefit from the time you retire until your death. Your benefit amount is based on a formula that calculates your years of service credit, age at retirement and your final compensation.
