Investment Market Volatility and Retiree Benefit Payments

There should be no concern whatsoever of SDCERA's ability to pay retired Members and beneficiaries their monthly retirement benefits. SDCERA's Trust Fund has $11 billion in total assets. Using just 10% of these assets and with regular contributions by the plan sponsors and employees, SDCERA can pay retired Members and beneficiaries for well over a decade. The remaining 90% of Trust Fund assets continue to be prudently invested in well-diversified financial markets and positioned to take advantage of market dislocations.
