You may submit a

PLEASE NOTE: If you became an SDCERA Member after July 1, 1996,
federal or state law limits the amount of compensation that may be used to calculate your benefit.
For 2019, the compensation limit for Tier 1, Tier A and Tier B Members is $280,000,
General Tier C and Tier D Members is $124,180 and Safety Tier C Members is $149,016.
These limits are reflected in the calculation above.
This estimate is not a guarantee of eligibility
or benefit amount, and it may differ from the benefit amount you
receive at retirement.
