The County of Santa Clara provides retirement benefits to its long-term coded employees. These benefits are determined by a combination of factors, including age, length of qualified service, PERS member classification (miscellaneous or safety), and a contribution rate determined by bargaining unit agreements. Additionally, for eligible employees, the County provides access to retiree group health plans.
When you have reached age 50 and have five years qualified service with CalPERS, you are eligible to retire.
In addition, there are other things you should consider in preparing for your future. At age 50, you may have additional contribution options available as part of the Deferred Compensation Program.
