Pension Reform Implementation Delay

ACERA’s implementation of one of the new state pension reform laws will be delayed until a lawsuit filed against ACERA is resolved.   This applies to all active members (current employees) and deferred members, and applies to all proposed changes regarding salary that were to be enacted on January 1, 2013.  The new effective date for the law will be determined by the court.  For more information, read ACERA’s Notice of Delay in Implementing Assembly Bill 197.
