Board of Retirement
OCERS is administered by the Board of Retirement, a group of ten trustees bound by the County Employees’ Retirement Law of 1937. Of the ten members, four are appointed by the County Board of Supervisors; four (including the Safety alternate) are elected by OCERS’ active members. One is elected by the retired membership. The County Treasurer serves as an ex-officio member. Board members serve three-year terms, with the exception of the County Treasurer, who serves during his or her tenure in office.
