Each year, ACERA’s actuary calculates the contribution rates that employees and employers must contribute to ACERA’s fund by law in order for us to have enough funds to pay out all the benefits we owe to current retirees, future retirees, and other qualified recipients like beneficiaries.
We’ve received a few questions about contributions recently, so here are some answers to common questions about the retirement fund contributions.

The County Employees Retirement Law of 1937 (CERL), as amended, beginning at California Government Code Section 31450, et seq., is a body of law enacted to govern retirement benefits for certain public employees. The CERL governs retirement systems for county and district employees in those counties adopting its provisions pursuant to Cal. Gov. Code §31500. Twenty California counties operate retirement systems under the provisions of the 1937 Act, which sets forth the policies and regulations governing the actions of these county retirement systems.
