What you contribute toward your retirement is based on several factors, such as whether you are a Miscellaneous member or a Safety member, your age at the time you become a MCERA member, and the date you become a MCERA member. If you are eligible for Reciprocity, which is an agreement among California retirement systems, your contribution rate may be lowered.
Find out who is eligible for membership. Your date of entry into the retirement system will determine which Plan you will be in.
A beneficiary is a person or persons you name to receive benefits in the event of your death. These benefits might be limited to a refund of your contributions, or they might be a lifetime benefit. Be sure your beneficiary designation is always up-to-date.
