Proposed Amendment to Actuarial Funding Policy
Upon recommendation of its actuary, the Segal Company, the Orange County Employees Retirement System is proposing an amendment of its Actuarial Funding Policy to include a Cash Out Assumption in its actuarial assumptions.  The Cash out Assumption will be applied to employee contribution rates.  The impact of the Cash Out Assumption on employee contribution rates is discussed at length in the Segal Company’s letter to the Board of Retirement found here.  This notice is being posted in compliance with the OCERS Cost Impacting Policy found here.  OCERS welcomes public comment on this issue.  Please send written comments to OCERS at no later than February 5. Public is also welcome to comment at the January 21 and February 18 Board Meetings. This policy change with the proposed policy language will be placed on the Board of Retirement Regular Meeting agenda for February 18, 2014 for final adoption. (Matter was continued to a later board meeting.)



OCERS sets record straight on investments
The Orange County Register has published a letter co-authored by OCERS' Chair of the Investment Committee
and the Chair of the Board of Retirement. The letter addresses OCERS' successful approach to long-term investing. Read the letter here.



OCERS employs sound funding policy
Several recent media articles have focused attention on OCERS funding levels and ability to pay promised benefits. All current and future retirees should be confident in OCERS' ability to pay those promised benefits. As of July 31, 2013, OCERS' portfolio had more than $10.6 billion. OCERS, and other public pension systems in California, use widely accepted guidelines for long term planning, controlling costs, management of investment risk as well as controlling the volatility of employee and employer contributions. OCERS' policy to amortize its unfunded liability is in full compliance with the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB). An in-depth article on this topic will be published in the October issue of At Your Service which is mailed to all OCERS members as well as posted on OCERS' Web site.
