Retirement Board

The Retirement System and its members benefit greatly from the leadership of an experienced and knowledgeable Retirement Board.  Within the scope of its fiduciary duties, the Board establishes and follows policies governing the administration, management, and operation of the City’s retirement plans; manages the investment of the Retirement System’s assets; approves disability benefit determinations; and approves actuarial assumptions used to fund long-term benefit promises of the SFERS Pension Plan. The Retirement Board meets on the second Wednesday of each month.

The Retirement Board is composed of seven members: three members elected by the active and retired members of SFERS; three members appointed by the Mayor in accordance with §12.100 the San Francisco City Charter; and one member of the Board of Supervisors appointed by the President.
