This is about the retirement benefits we offer. You’ve probably heard that we have a great retirement plan. Basically, you fall into a Tier based on the date you first start working for the County or any other governmental employer that uses CalPERS for retirement. If this is your first job in government, then you’ll be in Tier III. 2.0 means that for every year you work for the County, you will receive 2% of your final annual pay rate for every year that you work for us if you work the required minimum number of years (that’s called vesting) and retire after the age following the @. So, if you work 20 years and retire at 64 years of age, you will receive 20 x 2% or 40% of your final annual pay rate every year in retirement.

The County participates in the CalPERS retirement system, with both the County and the employee making contributions toward the employee’s retirement.
