Active Member pension contribution rates are rising
(and it's a good thing)

Active SDCERA Members may notice a change in their SDCERA retirement contribution rate in July.

As an SDCERA Active Member, your contribution to the defined benefit plan that SDCERA administers provides you with a stable retirement income for your lifetime. While the recent contribution rate increase may reduce your current take-home pay, it ensures the long-term solvency of SDCERA's Trust Fund that will provide you with a retirement benefit you cannot outlive.

Contributions are calculated by an independent actuary who determines the contributions needed to provide your future retirement benefit. To ensure proper funding of the SDCERA Trust Fund, the actuary regularly adjusts contribution rates to accurately reflect past experience and forward-looking projections.

If you have any questions, please contact SDCERA's Member Service Center at 619.515.6800.

Retiring from the Retirement Board

SDCERA Trustee James Feeley Retires After Three Decades of Board Service

After a record-setting 33-year tenure, James Feeley is retiring from SDCERA's Board of Retirement. Jim is SDCERA's longest-serving Trustee.

Feeley began serving on the Board in March 1982 while an active employee with the San Diego County Assessor's Office. He served four consecutive terms until June 1992. After he retired from County service, Feeley has occupied the eighth seat on the Board of Retirement since July 1996.

"It has been a great honor to serve with Jim Feeley on the Retirement Board, and we are all going to miss him," said SDCERA Board Chair Dianne Jacob. "He has not only served SDCERA with distinction for decades, but has been a model public servant. On behalf of the Board, I'd like to thank Jim for his many contributions and wish him the very best."

Friend and fellow SDCERA Trustee E.F. "Skip" Murphy noted, "Jim always had a single focus as a Board member and that was to work on behalf of all Members of the retirement system. He's earned some personal time for himself and his family."

In May 2017, Susan Mallett was elected to the Alternate Retired Member seat on SDCERA's Board of Retirement. Her three-year term on the Board of Retirement begins July 1, 2017. After a 24-year career with the San Diego County Probation Department, Mallett retired as the Deputy Chief of Juvenile Institutions in November 2006. In that role, she was responsible for approximately one third of Probation Department employees. Mallett served on the Board of the Retired Employees of San Diego County (RESDC) as a director and as president for more than five years beginning in 2009. In that capacity, she was an active observer of Board of Retirement meetings, speaking before SDCERA's Board on issues related to retiree benefits and interests.
