The following bills were signed into law and became effective January 1, 2014, unless otherwise noted.
AB 1380—Eligibility for Retirement, age/years of services
Assembly Bill (AB) 1380 prohibits applying the current age and years of service credit formula from specific County Employees Retirement Law of 1937 sections to members subject to the Public Employees’ Pension Reform Act of 2013 (PEPRA). This law makes PEPRA members (Tier C) eligible to retire once they have completed five years of service and reached the applicable minimum retirement age, or have reached age 70 if they are still an active member.
SB 13—PEPRA clean-up legislation
Senate Bill (SB) 13 clarifies provisions of the Public Employees' Pension Reform Act of 2013 (PEPRA). It allows reciprocal local public retirement systems to fully implement the original pension reform act measures and grants local systems the authority to adopt resolutions to implement PEPRA requirements.
