The County contracts with the Public Employee Retirement System (CalPERS) for this benefit in the miscellaneous or safety plans as appropriate. Effective January 1, 2013, all new members to CalPERS, or existing members with more than a 6-month break in service from a qualifying previous public employer, will be enrolled in one of the following CalPERS retirement plans (with three year average final compensation and a five year vesting period) based on their classification:
- Miscellaneous (SEIU & MCMCO) - 2% at 62
- Safety (DSA & MSA) - 2.7% at 57
If a new employee is currently a member of a qualifying California public retirement plan without a break in service of no more than 6 months (documentation will be required), or ever worked for Mariposa County previously, they may qualify instead for either of these plans (with three year average final compensation and a five year vesting period) in effect prior to January 1, 2013:
- Miscellaneous (SEIU & MCMCO) - 2% at 55
- Safety (DSA & MSA) - 3% at 55
Contact CalPERS with any questions about your retirement plan.
Supplemental deferred-compensation plans (or a 457 plan) are available through CalPERs and Nationwide. Please contact Human Resources for more information about these plans.
