SamCERA was founded on July 1, 1944 by the San Mateo County Board
of Supervisors, and for the past 75 years, we have remained
dedicated to serve as loyal fiduciary for our members and as
prudent administrator of the retirement system.
SamCERA members have two separate periods of time during
2019 to make service purchases. The process starts when
the member submits a Purchase Request form. Members may submit
Purchase Request forms at any time.
