At the end of each fiscal year, SFERS provides a statement of your accumulated account balance which includes the contributions made to the plan plus interest for the period July 1 thru June 30.
In August, we mail a copy of your statement to your address of record as of June 30. You can also view or print your statement anytime, in the mySFERS secure member portal. If you prefer not to receive a mailed paper statement, log in to mySFERS, select “Annual Statement” under the Profile tab, and select “Manage Annual Statement Mailing” to opt out of having a paper statement mailed.
You can also review your balance of contributions and other individual account information in mySFERS. Your account balance is updated bi-weekly after each payroll period. To view and print a verification of your account balance, select “Account Balance Verification” under the Profile tab.
The San Francisco Employees’ Retirement System (SFERS) is a defined benefit plan. You cannot borrow or withdraw funds from your retirement account for any reason, while you are employed. You may elect a refund of your accumulated contributions only when you terminate employment.
