Unified Port District retirees receive a monthly retirement benefit based on age at retirement, total years of service credit and final compensation (highest three-year salary for General Members, highest one-year salary for Safety Members).
Your retirement benefit from SDCERS is a lifetime benefit. Additionally, you may choose to leave a monthly continuance to a spouse, registered domestic partner (RDP) or beneficiary to be paid upon your death. That continuance is paid to your beneficiary for life.
In addition to a monthly retirement benefit, some retirees are eligible for supplemental benefits. Visit the Supplemental Benefit page listed at left to learn more.
