Supplemental Retiree Benefit Reserve Valuation



ACERA’s non-vested benefits are subject to available funds in the Supplemental Retiree Benefit Reserve (SRBR). The SRBR receives regular earnings and half of any interest income above our 7.00% annual projection, a process known as “gain sharing.”

ACERA’s actuary annually determines the value of the SRBR, providing a preliminary report on the previous year each spring and an official valuation report each fall; past valuation reports are cataloged below. ACERA policy aims to keep the SRBR above a projected 15-year sustainability level, and the Board may modify or eliminate non-vested benefits to attain this goal. In the most recent official SRBR valuation (as of December 31, 2022), the SRBR was valued at $1.161 billion, which is projected to fund benefits through 2049, or 27+ years.

The following chart depicts the history of SRBR sustainability projections by ACERA’s actuary. Projections use data as of December 31 of each year depicted.
