Pension & Retirement

All contractual employees of the district (and some non-contractual employees - Noontime Aides) must be enrolled in one of three state retirement systems. Full time certified staff are members of the Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Fund (TPAF), part-time certified staff are members of the Defined Contribution Retirement Program (DCRP), and non-certified staff are members of the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) or (DCRP). Members of all the DCRP contribute 5.50% of their salary for these benefits, while members of the (TPAF) and (PERS) contribute 7.50% of their salaries for these benefits. Membership handbooks/facts sheets for all three of these retirements systems are posted below, and employees are encouraged to review the contents to become familiar with these valuable retirement benefits. Enrollment in the Member Benefits Online System (MBOS) is highly recommended.

All employees of the district are eligible to enroll in 403b and 457b supplemental retirement systems offered by district approved vendors (see payroll page for details). Vendors should be contacted directly for additional information.
