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.
