Choosing your retirement benefits

Welcome to UC! Your retirement benefits are a valuable part of your compensation, so take the time to consider your options carefully.

Eligible faculty and staff have 90 days to make a choice between Pension Choice and Savings Choice. (If you're eligible, you'll receive a Retirement Benefits Decision Guide in the mail.) The sooner you enroll, the sooner you start receiving UC contributions and/or service credit.

Did you work for UC before July 1, 2016, or are you a CalPERS "Classic Member"? Read more about different rules that may apply to your retirement benefits.
