Correction regarding Investment Manager Searches
Contrary to a recent media report, OCERS is not currently engaged in searches for four direct hedge fund managers within the long/shore equity, tactical trading, and multi-strategy sections, one or two European opportunities managers within the diversified credit space, or a metal/mining manager within the real return allocation.  Searches for managers in these sectors have been completed.  Investment managers should review the "Guidance to Investment Industry Marketers" and check the OCERS Web site frequently for updates on searches.



Contribution rates update

Beginning July 2014, the majority of OCERS active members will see an adjustment in their contribution rates. Contribution rate changes, whether up or down, are normal for systems that prefund retirement benefits. Please note that any additional employee contributions (including the "Reverse Pickup") are not established by OCERS, although actions by OCERS do impact the amount by which the Reverse Pickup rate increases or decreases from year to year. The employee contribution rates are based on age of entry and bargaining unit. To see current and new rates that go into effect around July 1, visit here.



OCERS reports preliminary 2013-14 'Fiscal Year' return of 14.3%

Did You Know?

OCERS has an ethics, compliance and fraud hotline.  You may report concerns about suspected fraud, waste, or violations of law or policy. OCERS has contracted with an independent company, EthicsPoint, to accept calls and Internet reports twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The information you provide will be sent to OCERS' Internal Audit Division by EthicsPoint on a completely confidential and anonymous basis.

Certain Members Must Choose Their Retirement Benefit Plan
Certain eligible employees hired by the County of Orange and Superior Court
are required to elect their retirement benefit formula. To help these eligible members understand details about Plan O/P ("1.62% at 65") and Plan I/J ("2.7% at 55"), OCERS provides a number of resources to help these members determine which plan is better for them. Click here to learn more.
