In compliance with current tax law, the Retirement System mails 1099-R Forms to retired members at the end of January every year for tax filing. The 1099-R Form details the SFERS benefits paid to you beginning December of the prior year through November 30 of the tax year being reported (e.g. December 2021 – November 2022).
If you do not receive your 1099-R Form in the mail by the end of January, you can access a duplicate copy via mySFERS secure member portal, beginning in February.
You can also request a duplicate copy of your 1099-R Form by contacting the Retirement System by phone at 415-487-7000, or by email at [email protected].
