President’s Message

By John J. McTighe John McTighe

Last month I looked back at what happened at RESDC over the past year. This month, I’m looking forward to what’s in store for 2017. While we can’t be certain about what the future holds, we can look at our Strategic Plan which guides your association over the year. Every year in August, your Board of Directors meets in a retreat where we go over our accomplishments for the past 12 months and formulate and/or revise a Strategic Plan for the next 12 months. At this past Board retreat we affirmed that RESDC will:

  • Advocate for the protection of currently held retirement funds at Board of Supervisors/Board of Retirement levels.
  • Advocate for the enhancement of benefits.
  • Be well informed on legislative proposals/initiatives introduced in both the U.S. Congress and the California Legislature and maintain a strong advocacy on issues that impact our members.
  • Communicate with members.
  • Monitor SDCERA actions and operations.
  • Ensure data displayed on the RESDC website and in the monthly newsletter (and all RESDC communication avenues) are current and accurate.
  • Increase membership and encourage participation on RESDC Board committees.
  • Review programs and services available in the community.
  • Continue to support and award merit scholarships.
  • Continue to encourage volunteerism at RESDC and the community.
  • Develop, adopt, and implement a RESDC Secure Retirement Advocacy Strategy.

Space limitations do not allow me to go into detail about all these objectives, but I’d like to highlight a few of them. First, you will notice the words “advocate” and “advocacy” appear several times in these objectives. Your Board of Directors takes its role as the advocate for county retirees very seriously. In fact, during our annual member survey, we often hear that being the advocate for retirees is the number one reason many of our members belong to RESDC. We will be taking those efforts further this year by reaching out to our local federal and state legislative representatives to inform them of the important issues and challenges facing county retirees. We want to make sure our legislators have the facts and know they can turn to RESDC to get more information when they vote on issues affecting public pension funds.

Second, several of the objectives involve you, our members, directly. It’s important we maintain a strong membership base to be effective advocates for retirees Our Each One, Reach One membership campaign will continue as a way existing members can bring their former co-workers into membership. We encourage our members to get involved in our committees and activities. If you have an interest in volunteering at RESDC, contact Mark Nanzer at ED@resdc.net or call him at (619) 688-9229. We will also be continuing to find ways our members can volunteer in the community. We will pass along information about worthy organizations and causes that could use some volunteer help.

Finally, I want to extend a warm welcome to the more than 250 new members who joined RESDC over the past few months. Please introduce yourself to me as a new member at any of our events this year so we can get acquainted.

Valuation Vs. Valuation Vs. Valuation

By Stan Coombs

Stan CoombsIn December 2015 our Board of Retirement approved the “San Diego County Employees Retirement Association Actuarial Valuation and Review As Of June 30, 2015.” This awkwardly entitled, 83-page annual report, produced by the retirement system’s actuary, Segal Consulting, provided a snapshot of County retirement.

It also set forth funding requirements for the next (2015-16) fiscal year. “Funding requirements” means needed fund earnings, needed county contributions, and needed payroll deductions from active County employees.

Board members questioned some of the complicated assumptions, projections and calculations, and listened while the respected Paul Angelo, of Segal Consulting, explained actuarial nuances. He did well. The Board seemed satisfied.

Advance one year. In December 2016, the Board of Retirement again considered and approved another Valuation, describing the system in June 30, 2016.

It occurs at this point, that a concurrent comparison of this latest 2016 Valuation with the decade-old, 2006 Valuation, and last year’s 2015 Valuation, adds historical perspective, despite the sometimes excruciating detail.

So we proceed. These valuations tell us that in June 2006 there were 34,187 total members in the system, 12,049 of whom were retired or beneficiaries. In June 2015 the numbers rose to 40,116 and 17,186, and in June 2016, to 40,914 and 17,734, increases of 19.7% and 47.2% in the two categories over the decade.

Average ages of active employees were reported as 44.5 years in 2006, 44.7 years in 2015 and 44.6 years in 2016, and for retirees, 68.5 years, 69.1 years and 69.2 years.

Average wages of active county employees were reported as $56,121 in 2006, $65,891 in 2015 and $67,928 in 2016, while average retiree pensions were reported to be $24,876 in 2006, $34,860 in 2015 and $35,556 in 2016. Those 2016 monthly pensions totaled $52,547,445, we’re told, about $630 million annually, and a year-over-2015 increase of 5.3%. A Census Bureau website says 2015 San Diego median household income was $67,320.

Total San Diego County retirement assets were reported to be $7,330,948,000 in June 2006, reflecting a market value return that year, of 14.98%. By 2015 the fund had responded sufficiently from the great recession to total $10,336,900,000, then settled to $10,269,058,000 in 2016, partially due to lower, 2.25% and .48% earnings those two years.

So we found ourselves, in June 2016, at the lowest funded level reported in Valuations over the past decade, 76.9%. However, these are “valuations values” of assets, meaning they’re impacted by an accounting “smoothing mechanism.” The 2006 Valuation had reported an 83.6% funded level, which rose to a 94.4% high in 2008 and has since moved unevenly downward. This calls for a more detailed explanation, since 2008 included the beginnings of the great recession.

This “smoothing mechanism” deliberately delays recognizing the full value of gains and losses each year, instead acknowledging them in equal proportions over five-year periods, smoothing otherwise abrupt changes in annual funding demands on the County and employees.

But total net assets are affected by more than investment performance. Pension payouts and expenses reduce the fund over the course of a year, earnings, and county and employee payroll contributions, add to it. And as indicated, this ten-year period we’re following includes the 2008-09 recession, the most severe economic dislocation since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It heavily impacted earnings.

So lower funded levels result from funding deficits, described in the actuarial language of the Valuation as an Unfunded Actuarial Accrued Liability, or UAAL. We’re told the UAAL increased from $2.54 billion to $3.32 billion in 2016. How did that happen?

The last few pages of the 2016 Valuation tells the story. Deficits usually occur when investment earnings don’t meet expectations, or when the Board of Retirement reduces formal estimates of future earnings (the assumption rate), meaning more funding will be needed from other sources than was previously expected. One or the other has occurred six times in the twelve years since 2004, the Board having reduced the assumption rate five times during that period, from 8.25%, down to 7.50% in 2015-16 and 7.25% in 2016-17. The individual year deficits are paid off over twenty-year periods.

That’s only part of the picture. Earnings exceeded the assumption rate substantially in six of those years, including 14.98% in 2006, 15.12% in 2007, 13.39% in 2010, 20.91% in 2011, and 13.39% in 2014. Most of those excess earnings were used to pay down the deficits.

The 2016 Valuation tells us that funding needed from the County for their share of “normal costs” due the system totaled $186,934,000, and county payments on the total UAAL totaled another $322,386,000. By my count, this totals about 9.4% of the County’s $5.4 billion budget. The 2016 Valuation also says that funding needed from employee contributions totaled $146,875,000, which translates into an average 12.17% deduction from active employee’s paychecks.

The 2015-16 Valuation says fund earnings needed that year totaled $377,344,430, while total net actual returns totaled $240,985,994.

RESDC Evening at the Theatre
On the 20th Century at Cygnet Theatre, March 15

We invite you to join RESDC for an evening of theatre on March 15th! We will be attending the musical On the 20th Century at Cygnet Theatre in Old Town. We have a limited number of tickets available at a group rate!

Founded in 2003, Cygnet Theatre is a leading regional company and one of San Diego’s cultural icons. Each year, Cygnet Theatre creates an eclectic mix of 6 or 7 mainstage productions, from classics to Broadway-style musicals.

On the 20th Century Show Overview: “It’s nonstop laughs aboard the Twentieth Century, a luxury train traveling from Chicago to New York City. Luck, love, and mischief collide when the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee embarks on a madcap mission to cajole glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland into playing the lead in his new, non-existent epic drama. But is the train ride long enough to reignite the spark between these former lovers, create a play from scratch, and find the money to get it all the way to Broadway?”

When: Wednesday, March 15. Show begins promptly at 7:30pm. We recommend arriving 30-45 minutes early to locate parking and pick up your tickets from the RESDC representative.

Note: This is a Preview Performance. Previews are a set of public performances of a theatrical presentation that precede its official opening. The purpose of previews is to allow the director and crew to identify opportunities for improvement that weren’t found during rehearsals, and to make adjustments before critics are invited to attend.

Where: Cygnet Theatre in Old Town, 4040 Twiggs Street, San Diego, CA 92110

Tickets: A limited quantity of group-rate $30 tickets are available for purchase through RESDC. Please make a check payable to RESDC, enclose with the Reservation Form, and mail to 8825 Aero Dr. Suite 205, San Diego, CA 92123. Please inform us of any special requirements, e.g. wheelchair, difficulty with stairs, etc. Tickets will not be mailed. Tickets will be distributed by a RESDC staff member starting at approximately 7:00pm on the evening of the performance outside the Cygnet Theatre Box Office.

Pension “Spiking” and the “California Rule” – Part I

By Chris Heiserman, Director

Chris HeisermanGreat media attention is focusing on two retirement benefit issues for public employees – pension “spiking” and the long-standing legal precedent called the “California Rule.”

  • Pension “spiking” is generally regarded as methods of boosting final compensation at the end of a public employee’s career and inflating retirement benefits by adding unused vacation time, sick leave, auto allowances or other types of specialty pay outside of basic salary.
  • The “California Rule” holds that public workers obtain a vested contractual right when hired to receive a pension calculated on terms in place the day they started work.

Anti-public pension forces, including many of California’s major metropolitan newspaper editorial boards, would like to erase defined benefit retirement plans for future public workers and force them into 401(k) style savings accounts – the prevalent retirement model in the private sector. With regard to current public employees, they hope to reduce their pension benefits to save future taxpayer dollars. These pension “reformers” believe a state Supreme Court decision expected in the next several months on a case involving benefit “spiking” may pierce the legal armor of the “California Rule” and lead to further erosion of constitutional protection for public employee retirement benefits.

Basically these critics of public pensions want to allow cities, counties, districts, and the state to reduce retirement benefits for active workers to take a bite out of the growing tab to cover future benefits promised retirees. They propose to accomplish this by curtailing pension “spiking” and lowering benefit levels going forward without touching those already earned.

While it seems simple and fair to keep promises made to workers about their retirement benefits, it can get complicated when viewed across the hundreds of state and local agencies establishing the benefits. Agreements are not always documented in writing; some labor groups contend that in negotiations they accepted lower wage increases in exchange for the ability to include vacation or sick leave balances in their pension calculation at retirement.

Interestingly, this type of trade-off at the bargaining table meant the employer saved a great deal of money upfront by not paying higher wages to all workers; and the cost of the add-ons at retirement would be spread out over many years and affect individual employees very differently. Some workers might need to use their sick leave and want to take family vacations; others may work years without using many sick or vacation hours and retire with a lifetime monthly pension larger than their earnings while working full time.
After many years where retiring workers enhance their pensions this way, it becomes viewed as the norm and newly hired employees may assume they can expect similar treatment if they work long enough to vest in the pension plan.

That brings us to the aforementioned Supreme Court case related to pension “spiking.” The original court action involved the Marin County Employees’ Retirement Association (similar to our SDCERA) and arose in the aftermath of 2012 state legislation (California Public Employees’ Pension Reform Act, or PEPRA) which took effect in January, 2013. The law changed retirement calculations for newly hired workers, requiring them to work longer for somewhat reduced benefits at retirement. It also placed a cap on most public pensions, and a companion measure curtailed the practice of “spiking” benefits at retirement.

While the PEPRA changes clearly affected new employees hired since January 2013, the Marin Retirement Association decided to apply the anti-spiking provision to all retirees beginning in 2013. The Association’s move to begin excluding standby pay, callback pay, and other cash payments from pension calculations resulted in legal action by four labor unions.

In August a state Court of Appeal upheld a Marin County lower court ruling that the restrictions could be applied to current workers. The California Supreme Court has agreed to hear the matter on appeal. A second more recent Court of Appeal decision eliminating public employees’ ability to buy extra retirement credits to enhance pensions will likely also be appealed and the Supreme Court is expected to hear both cases.

Potential landmark rulings could result.

In the Marin County case the justices unanimously concluded that public employees had a vested right to a “reasonable” pension, but the benefits are subject to change before they actually retire. The justice that wrote the opinion indicated the elimination of “spiking” in this case would reduce the pension calculations, but the employees would still be able to receive the additional compensation they earned before they retire.

Labor union representatives across the state say the promised pension benefits of hundreds of thousands of current public workers are threatened by this potential weakening of the “California Rule.” Public pension critics, of course, hope it will open the door to more substantial reductions in state and local benefits promised to future retirees.
