Leave of Absences

What you need to know about leaves

What type of leave are you taking

Purchasing retirement service credit for medical leave of absence.  

SBCERS retirement benefits are based, in part, on the amount of retirement service credit accumulated prior to retirement.  If you were on leave of absence without pay for medical reasons, you may purchase a period not to exceed twelve (12) consecutive months in any one absence for a medical leave.  More information about service credit purchases, and the Service Credit Purchase Request Form, can be found at:  https://www.sbcers.org/active-members/about-your-membership/#service-credit
