Who is OCERS?
OCERS provides lifetime retirement and disability benefits to employees of the County and certain districts. Membership in OCERS is mandatory for all eligible employees. It is, however, optional for certain elected officials. Employee contributions to OCERS is mandatory. However, as a member of OCERS, you neither contribute toward, nor receive credit for, Social Security.

Video Library Online

We have instructional videos on our Video Library page. If you are new to OCERS, be sure to watch the FAQ video-Defined Benefit Plan.

Verification of Your Monthly Benefit ("Award Letter")

OCERS has a feature for payees using myOCERS to view and print a verification of their monthly benefit (also known as an "Award Letter"). The Award Letter displays the payee's retirement date and gross monthly allowance. This is often needed when applying for benefits with Social Security or used as income verification for loans and other financial transactions.

Certain Members Must Choose Their Retirement Benefit Plan
Active members of OCERS prior to January 1, 2013 who move to certain eligible positions with the County of Orange and Superior Court within six months if it is a new employer, or those who were employed by a reciprocal system prior to January 1, 2013, are required to elect their retirement benefit formula. To help these eligible members understand details about Plan P ("1.62% at 65") and Plan I/J ("2.7% at 55"), OCERS provides a number of resources to help these members determine which plan is better for them. See the resources section on the Membership page to learn more.
