Your Age Factor is multiplied by your service credit which totals a percentage. This percentage is then multiplied by your HAPC*, Highest Average Plan Compensation your highest 36 consecutive average monthly earnings. This period can be anytime in your career not just the last 3 years and is the fulltime equivalent for part-time employees. *HAPC will be reduced by $133 for our UC members coordinated w/ss Pension Calculation Formula: Age Factor x Service Credit x HAPC Example: UCLA employee retires at age 62 with 20 years of service credit and HAPC of $2,733. Age Factor.0250 x 20 Years = 50% 50% x HAPC ($2,733 - $133 = $2,600) = $1,300 50% x $133 = Social Security Offset = $66.50 Monthly pension benefit is $1, (BRI) Social Security Offset is $66.50 (payable to age 65) 1

2 Age Factors Service Credit Note Accrue service credit at the rate you are paid. Approved LWOP result in NO service credit including non-coordinated W/C leaves. You can Buyback missed service credit due to a LWOP. Buyback must be elected within 3 years of return to eligible appointment. Any unused Sick Hours convert* into Service Credit! *Retirement must commence within 120 days of separation and a monthly benefit must be elected. What Is Included In My HAPC? Highest 36 Consecutive Month Average Salary? Pay Included in Average: - Base Salary - Merit Increases - Shift Differential - Stipend Pay NOT Included in Average: - Overtime - Incentive Award - Bonus Payment Options Basic Retirement Income By taking this payment you are taking the maximum payment to yourself Includes applicable Survivor Benefits Contingent Annuitant Payment Options A, B, C & D These options let you share the with one other person. You take a slight reduction to your pension benefit and the other person gets paid after your death Lumpsum Cashout Take the money and run! UC Defines Your Eligible UC Survivor As Survivor Beneficiary Spouse or Domestic Partner - married/uben 250 at least one year prior to retirement Child - under age 18; up to age 22 if still in school - disabled Dependent Parent - received at least 50% support from you one year prior to your death 2

3 What about a regular retirement? POST-RETIREMENT SURVIVOR Not optional Benefit is automatically built into the plan Member does not take a reduction in benefit With Social Security Without Social Security 25% B.R.I. 50% B.R.I. Eligible UC Survivors: Spouse or D/P (does not need to be age 60 or older), Child(ren), Dependent Parents What about a regular retirement? CONTINGENT ANNUITANT PAYMENT OPTIONS Option A: Full Continuance Option B: 2/3 Continuance Option C: 1/2 Continuance Option D: 1/2 Continuance (for married social security coordinated members only) What if I die but am eligible to retire? Does my spouse get anything? Employee is already eligible to retire (at least age 50 with at least 5 years of Career service credit) Death occurs before retiring Spouse/Domestic Partner* is eligible for monthly lifetime benefit immediately after your death Benefit is calculated as if employee retired the day after date of death and elected Contingent Annuitant payment option A Additional Survivor benefits may be payable only after spouse/domestic Partner dies (see Eligible UC Survivor ) *Spouse/Domestic Partner does not need to be age 60 or older Pension Calculation Examples Example: UCLA employee retires at age 62 with 20 years of service credit and HAPC of $2,733. Age Factor.0250 x 20 Years = 50% 50% x HAPC ($2,733 - $133 = $2,600) = $1,300 50% x $133 = Social Security Offset = $66.50 Monthly pension benefit is $1, (BRI) Social Security Offset is $66.50 (payable to age 65) (same example from slide 8) Payment Examples Member s Lifetime Mo $ Eligible Survivor Mo $ Contingent Annuitant Mo $ BRI $1,300 $ Option A (100%) $1, $325 $835 Option B (66%) $1,202 $325 $585 Option C (50%) $1,224 $325 $449 Option D (50%) $1, $624 In example, Contingent Annuitant = Eligible Survivor (spouse or domestic partner); Contingent Annuitant benefits are based on life expectancy. Cost of Living Adjustments (COLAs) When an inactive member retires, the HAPC is increased to include a COLA of up to 2% for each July 1 between the separation date and the retirement date. After receiving benefits for one year, members are eligible to receive an annual COLA paid each July 1. The COLA is based on the Consumer Price Index the previous year, and will not exceed 6%.
