Your final average compensation is one of the factors used to determine your lifetime benefit. For Tier 1 members, it is your highest 12-consecutive months of earnable compensation at any time during your membership or at another agency with which you have established reciprocity. For this calculator you must enter your average monthly final average compensation. Do not enter your annual compensation.
Service Credit under Different Retirement Formulas: Please use the Split Service Calculator if you have both General and Safety member service credit. The General and Safety plans use different benefit formulas and the calculator above does not calculate the benefit estimates using split plan service credit.
Important Notice - This retirement calculator does not produce an official SBCERA estimate and SBCERA is not bound by the results.
This calculator shows your projected monthly lifetime retirement benefit based on the information entered and is calculated for the unmodified benefit option only. Your actual retirement benefit will be based on your date of retirement, highest final average compensation, verified service credit, and other factors that may differ from the factors used to calculate this estimate. Your benefit may also be subject to cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs), legislative and judicial legal actions, and your reciprocal rights, if any, from other pension systems. The calculator does not provide estimates for disability retirement benefits.
Reciprocal service credit only counts towards determining when you have accrued the minimum amount of service credit to become vested and eligible for retirement. It will not be included when calculating your retirement benefit. Therefore, it should not be included in your total years of service credit when using this calculator. However, any service credit purchased will be included when calculating your future retirement benefit and should be included for this calculator.
Please contact SBCERA if you have any questions or would like to request an official benefit estimate.
