    Guys, thx a ton. Some great replies. I am definitely hoping it works out and I'm out there in 2020. Def leaning towards University or a school police dept. I am in patrol and I am my PD's Megan's law officer. I also was a parole officer for 6 years and have some investigative experience. I will do some google searches tonight. Thanks again and Be safe. Jay

    This is correct. Whatever formula an agency had in December 2012 is what they can offer to a classic member. The only exception to this is if a former employee returns to his/her agency, and has not withdrawn their prior agency member contributions, or pays them back with a certain period after hire (i think you have 30 days to redeposit) then you are entitled to your old formula. I know this because i returned to my old bay area agency and while they were [email protected] in 12/2012 I was able to return to [email protected] because that is what i was under when i left.

    SF and Fresno have 2.7 formulas for safety employees... but Fresno started that formula in 1990 and SF a year ahead of PEPRA. I can't think of any other charter cities except SF, SD, Fresno, and LA (which I don't think uses a standard ## @ ##% formula) that have their own retirement systems.

    Are you sure about the part referring to classic members? I think the formula for classic members is whatever the agency had contractually negotiated before PEPRA, IE: if an agency had 3 @ 50, that's what it would be. I don't think all safety classic changed to 3 @ 55. Now a lot of agencies on their own changed to 3 @ 55 prior to PEPRA, but there are some that did not.

    Remember the [email protected] retirement plan still allows for retirement at age 50. Your multiplier for the years up to that point is 2%. Each year of service after that gets you an additional .1% topping out at age 57 with 2.7%.

    The UC retirement system was exempt from the pension reform law so they could still be offering 3% retirement. I'm not sure if that is the case though. Charter cities and counties are also exempt from the pension reform law. Google is your friend.

    Also, I heard that Dept. of Insurance has all sorts of money for hiring. They are funding DA Investigator positions for medical fraud. (DA Investigators for the most part are former officers with investigative experience.)

    As to the POST waiver vs. Requal, I think New Jersey is okay. Check with POST first, then the agency you are interested in.

    Look into some of the University PD's in the San Diego area (SDSU, UCSD) I've heard good things about the work envinroment there and I was recently told SDSU PD has full medical with retirement. Not sure how many years, etc until vested though.

    SDPD staffing is low, but five year plan looks to improve things a lot..we are hoping. Still a good department to work compared to others in the area especially. Retirement is among the best now.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I will be 45 if I retire w 20 here. If I do 10 years there I will have to make do for 2 years before collecting both pensions. Im definitely leaning towards a specialized PD like a school or airport PD. I dont want to be going call to call and working patrol shifts like I do here.

    3 at 50 is dead for new hires. Almost everyone is 2.7 @ 57.... San diego PD is 3 @ 55. But it's a very busy big city with ridiculously low staffing.

    Since you're comong from a non-CalPERS agency, I think you're a new hire, which means no [email protected]
