Note about February 1, 2022, CalPERS Retiree Pension Check Health Deductions: City retiree health benefits are managed solely by the City. CalPERS does not manage these benefits or know the health plan enrollment for any retirees (and dependents) on a City health plan. If the deduction code on your February 1, 2022, CalPERS pension check does not reflect the name of your City health plan enrollment, we are working to correct the code name for the March 1, 2022, pension check. If the amount being deducted for your 2022 benefits is incorrect, contact Benefit Services at (916) 808-5665. We are unaware at this time of any incorrect deduction amounts after completing a review. We appreciate your patience while we work to get the code corrected.

2022 Open Enrollment closed October 29, 2021. Retirees must experience a Qualifying Life Event to change enrollment in a City health plan outside the annual Open Enrollment period.

2022 Open Enrollment confirmation statements are expected to mailed to retirees enrolled in City health benefits or participating in cash in-lieu during late February 2022. 

Retirees must live within the plan's service area to be enrolled on a City health plan. The live/work rule does not apply for retirees.
