Domestic Partners

As of January 1, 2005, the qualifying registered domestic partner of a VCERA member will be eligible for the same benefits available to a spouse of a VCERA member. The Domestic Partnership must be filed with the California Secretary of State. All references to “spouse” on this website apply equally to a registered domestic partner.

Divorce & Community Property

The division of the community property interest in your retirement account upon your legal separation or dissolution of marriage will follow the provisions of Article 8.4 of the County Employees’ Retirement Law of 1937. As defined by law, your VCERA pension is considered a community property asset. For more information on this subject, contact VCERA.
