Employer and Employee Contribution Rates

 
 
 

Select Your Employer from the drop down list

 

 

 

What are Contribution Rates?

You automatically become a member of OCERS on the date you first start employment with an OCERS covered employer. And during your employment you contribute a percentage of your pay each pay period through automatic payroll deductions which are submitted to OCERS and posted into your Retirement Account. This percentage amount is your Contribution Rate, which is determined annually by OCERS' actuary and is available on OCERS' Web site.

 

OCERS Employee Contribution Rates are based on three components: Your Employer, Your Benefit Plan, and your entry age, which is your age at the time you first started employment with an OCERS covered employer and became a member of OCERS.

 

How do you figure out what your Contribution Rate is?

Under the Employer and Employee Contribution Rates section of this webpage:

 

    Select your Employer from the drop down list

    Under the Employee Contribution Rates section of the chart, locate your entry age          (far left column) and your plan (top row). This is your contribution rate.

 

What are Reverse Pickups?

In addition to OCERS contribution rates, if you work for certain bargaining units within the County of Orange, OCERS, O.C. Superior Court, LAFCO, O.C. Children and Families, or O.C. Public Law Library you may be subject to an additional reverse pickup percentage. The reverse pickup amount is paid in addition to your regular OCERS contributions. These rates are set by the employer and used to offset the employer’s ongoing pension obligation.

    Locate your Employer, your bargaining unit and then your plan. This is your reverse          pickup rate.

    Add your reverse pickup rate to your OCERS contribution rate to determine the
         t
otal contribution percentage that will be deducted each pay period and posted to
        
your OCERS Retirement account.

 

If your employer or bargaining unit is not listed on the reverse pickup rate chart, then you may not be subject to paying a reverse pickup. You can confirm this by contacting your Human Resources or Payroll Departments, or OCERS. Click here for a list of bargaining units.
