Financial Impact on County’s Retirement System

Government Code Section 31515.5 requires the County to provide the estimated financial impact that proposed benefit changes or salary increases for current employees would have on the funding status of SamCERA‘s retirement fund, the County’s retirement system.

 

The change in Org 63000, involves the reclassification of a filled position. As reflected in the attached letter from SamCERA’s actuary, Milliman, the incumbent in this position is an active member of General Plan 7 and currently receives compensation in excess of the PEPRA Compensation Limit for 2021 under Government Code Section 7522.10. Since compensation in excess of the PEPRA Compensation Limit is disregarded in the calculation of individual benefits and the funding of SamCERA, it Milliman’s understanding that any additional compensation received by such individuals will not result in increased retirement benefits. Therefore, there is no increase in Actuarial Accrued Liability or Statutory Contribution Rates due to this increase in compensation.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

These actions represent an estimated monthly salary and benefits cost of $3,782 for an annual cost estimate of $45,378.
