Switching Between Part Time and Full Time
Change from part-time, seasonal, intermittent, or project contract status to full-time permanent status.
Employees who change to full-time permanent status become eligible for ACERA membership. Upon becoming eligible, your employer’s payroll clerk or Human Resources department will provide you with an ACERA New member Enrollment Questionnaire.You need to complete and return this form to your employer.The form provides ACERA with the information needed to begin your membership.
Once you establish your membership, you may decide you wish to purchase service credit to obtain credit for your period(s) of part-time or ineligible status service.
Change from full-time permanent to part-time, seasonal, intermittent, or project status.
During the course of your ACERA-covered employment, your job status may change from full-time permanent to part-time, seasonal, intermittent, or project status. In such an event you would remain a contributing ACERA member. Your employee contributions continue and you continue to earn ACERA service credit for your hours worked. You cannot discontinue membership unless you terminate employment.
