Who is OCERS?
OCERS provides lifetime retirement and disability benefits
to employees of the County and certain
districts. Membership in OCERS is
mandatory for all eligible employees. It
is, however, optional for certain
elected officials and new
employees age 60 and over who waive
membership. Employee contributions to
OCERS is mandatory. However, as a member
of OCERS, you neither contribute toward,
nor receive credit for, Social Security.
