Reciprocity is an agreement among certain California public retirement systems allowing members to move from one public employer to another within a specific time allowing some portability of retirement benefits.
When you retire, you will receive a retirement benefit based on your years of Service and benefit formula from each reciprocal agency. Each agency will use your HIGHEST Final Compensation, even if it is from a different agency, to calculate your benefits.
To apply for Reciprocity, please complete and return the Certification of Service form.
