Will participating in Voluntary Time Off (VTO) affect my SamCERA benefits?

Post Retirement Benefits

For those members who participate in VTO, your service credit will not be affected by VTO. However, because VTO will reduce your salary, it would reduce your Final Average Compensation (FAC) if you participate in VTO during the time period used to calculate your FAC — In which case your benefit will be affected.
