Paid Time Off
Retirement Planning Seminars are scheduled on weekdays. The County of Sacramento Personnel Policies & Procedures authorizes paid time off to attend retirement planning seminars sponsored by SCERS if the employee meets certain eligibility conditions. Specifically, Section L-6 “Time Off to Attend Retirement Planning Program” provides:
2.1 Release time may be authorized only for employees who, as of the date of the seminar, already meet the minimum eligibility requirements for a service retirement from the Sacramento County Employees' Retirement System. For employees who are members of the miscellaneous retirement system, the minimum requirements usually are ten years of service and age 50. For safety members, the minimum is ten years of service and age 50, or 20 years of service at any age.
Employees may access the policy directly, or visit their Department’s human resources coordinator to obtain information about the policy and how it is administered within their department.
