President Dick Wilken’s Message

Hi REA members.

In our April Newsletter we notified our members that the City and SDPBEA will be switching from a fiscal year to a calendar year basis for retiree healthcare. SDCERS has just sent a letter to all retirees detailing how this will work.

If you did not receive the letter or have additional questions, you should visit the SDCERS website at If you have additional questions, you may contact the SDCERS’ Call Center at 619 525-3600.

Because the Call Center will be very busy, if the issue is not urgent, you are encouraged to submit your request electronically via the “Contact Us” page on the “About SDCERS” tab. You can click here to send them a message directly.

I am currently visiting my family on the East Coast. I will be back in San Diego for the May 10th meeting. Hope to see you then.
