Membership

SFERS safety members are current employees who work as a sworn Police Officer or Firefighter for the City and County of San Francisco.

Service earned by an employee while training to become a Police Officer or a Firefighter is in the Miscellaneous Plan.  Once the employee is hired as a sworn Police Officer or Firefighter, service is earned in the applicable safety plan.  When the employee qualifies for service retirement, he/she may also be eligible to receive an additional monthly benefit for the service earned in the Miscellaneous Plan as a trainee.
