Summary Plan Description
By reading the Summary Plan Description (SPD), you will find out what your benefits are, when they begin, and how their timing and distribution differ depending on various events in your life. The SPD provides disclosure of the terms and conditions of OCERS’ membership, retirement, disability, and death benefits available to members. It is designed to give you this information as simply and accurately as possible as of the date of issuance.
Check back periodically on our website for the most recent revisions to the SPD. OCERS is governed by the County Employees Retirement Law of 1937 (Government Code Section 31450 Et. Seq.) as adopted and implemented. If there is any inconsistency between the SPD and the governing law, the law will govern. Decisions pertaining to the Plan will be made after reference to statutes and any resolutions, regulations, and policies governing the administration of OCERS as they exist at the same time of the decisions.
