Retired member associations sponsor newsletters and social events
for ACERA retirees and surviving beneficiaries. Members of these
associations normally attend ACERA Board and Committee meetings

associations also lobby on behalf of retirees. Membership is
optional. To request a membership application, contact the

ACERA partners with 1st United Services Credit Union to allow a
portion of your retirement allowance to be redirected to your

enroll or change your credit union deduction amount, please
contact 1st United Services Credit Union at 1‑800‑649‑0193 to
request an enrollment or change form.
