For Sacramento County Employees

If you are planning for retirement, no matter how far away it is, two critical factors are health benefits costs and the potential to supplement your income in addition to your pension and Social Security in retirement. 

The Employee Benefits Office (EBO) has created a dedicated section on its website containing valuable information on healthcare options, deferred compensation, and other retirement considerations.  Click here to link to the EBO website. 

Paid Time Off to Attend

The County of Sacramento Personnel Policies & Procedures authorizes paid time off to attend retirement planning seminars sponsored by SCERS if the employee meets certain eligibility conditions. Specifically, Section L-6, "Time Off to Attend Retirement Planning Program" provides:

2.1 Release time may be authorized only for employees who, as of the date of the seminar, already meet the minimum eligibility requirements for a service retirement from the Sacramento County Employees’ Retirement System. For employees who are members of the miscellaneous retirement system, the minimum requirements usually are ten years of service and age 50. For safety members, the minimum is ten years of service and age 50, or 20 years of service at any age.
