Welcome! We’re glad you're a part of UC. Start taking advantage of the UC Retirement System benefits today.

HERE ARE NEXT STEPS TO CONSIDER

Choose Pension Choice or Savings Choice.

Eligible faculty and staff have 90 days to make a choice. (Eligible new hires receive a Decision Guide in the mail.) The sooner you enroll, the sooner you start receiving UC contributions and/or service credit.

Supplement your savings in UC's tax-deferred plans.

Supplement your retirement savings through the UC 403(b) or 457(b) plan, especially if you don’t think you’ll work for UC for 15 years or longer. Both allow you to save more on a pre-tax basis.

Consolidate your workplace savings plans.

Have a retirement account in a previous employer’s plan? Simplify your finances by rolling it into one of UC's retirements savings plans and take advantage of our low-cost investment options.
