Make CalPERS Payments Online, Save Time and Money

" "

Now that we’re all staying home and avoiding unnecessary trips, CalPERS has made it easier than ever to submit payments by offering electronic payment options at

We launched the payment gateway in March, and in just one month we received about 12% of payments online rather than through the mail or in person.

The new online payment gateway eliminates the extra cost of stamps, envelopes, making trips to the post office, or spending time writing checks. And if you’re going on vacation, payments can be scheduled up to 30 days in advance, so you don’t need to worry.

Payments that you can make to CalPERS include:

  • Retro health payments
  • Complementary annuitant premiums
  • Retirement overpayments
  • Medicare overpayments

Paying online is safe and secure, and ensures your payments are processed quickly. Just visit, enter your CalPERS identification number (CID) and invoice identification number or last name, and enter the amount you want to pay. You can pay for free by electronic funds transfer (EFT) or e-check by entering your bank routing and account numbers. Credit and debit cards can also be used for a small fee.
