2019 CalPERS Retirement Check Pay Days

""

Benefits are paid at the beginning of the month for the previous month’s benefits. For tax reasons, your December retirement check is always dated the first day of the new year.

The State Controller’s Office issues checks and determines mailing dates. If you have direct deposit, contact your financial institution to see when funds are placed in your account.

If your retirement check is mailed to you and you have not received it by the sixth of each month, or if you believe your check has been lost or stolen, call us at 888 CalPERS (or 888-225-7377).
