On February 12, the Board of Retirement approved a 1.5 percent Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA). If you retired on or before April 1, 2019, you have accumulations in your COLA "bank" that are used to increase your COLA. COLA increases will be on your May 1 benefit payment.

Recent events, including the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, have caused a downturn in financial markets. SJCERA would like to reassure our members that your benefits are secure. As a member of a defined benefit plan, your lifetime retirement allowance is not tied to investment returns, but is calculated based upon your age at retirement, years of service and salary.
At SJCERA, we invest for the long-term, rather than days, weeks or months. While our returns may fluctuate in the short-term, our investment strategy is designed to generate positive returns over decades. The SJCERA investment portfolio is broadly diversified in order to mitigate the effects of periods of market volatility and uncertainty such as the one we are currently experiencing.

We're all doing all we can to keep ourselves, our families, co-workers and customers safe in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It's understandable that SJCERA members are asking, "What happens to my retirement if an illness or injury prevents me from making decisions?" The SJCERA Special Power of Attorney (POA) form is specifically designed for SJCERA members and helps to provide peace of mind should you become unable to act on your own behalf. You choose which duties they will be allowed to perform, such as filing a retirement application, making a benefit election or designating beneficiaries.
We hope you never need it, but just in case, be prepared.
