Alameda Case Update

On July 30, 2020, the California Supreme Court upheld changes to the definition of "compensation earnable" enacted by the California Legislature as part of the Public Employees' Pension Reform Act of 2013. Compensation earnable is the legal term for compensation that is used to calculate SDCERA pension benefits for Tier I, Tier A and Tier B members.

As a result of the decision in Alameda County Deputy Sheriffs Association v Alameda County Employees Retirement Association ("Alameda"), SDCERA and the County of San Diego undertook a review of all compensation considered compensation earnable, or pensionable. Based on that review, SDCERA's Board of Retirement has determined that three earn codes previously considered pensionable are recognition awards that are properly excludable from the definition of compensation earnable and will be excluded as of January 29, 2021.
