Verification of your monthly benefit ("Award Letter")

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



Did You Know?

OCERS has an ethics, compliance and fraud hotline.  You may report concerns about suspected fraud, waste, or violations of law or policy. OCERS has contracted with an independent company, EthicsPoint, to accept calls and Internet reports twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The information you provide will be sent to OCERS' Internal Audit Division by EthicsPoint on a completely confidential and anonymous basis. Click here for more information or to make a report.

Certain Members Must Choose Their Retirement Benefit Plan
Certain eligible employees hired by the County of Orange and Superior Court
are required to elect their retirement benefit formula. To help these eligible members understand details about Plan O/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. Click here to learn more.
