This page is dedicated to providing our retirees with important information.  Here you will find the links to any updated information regarding your retiree benefits and any required documents.

Premium Changes:

To comply with contract provisions and CalPERS procedures, the City is changing their procedure on how the pension premium payments are to be paid.  This change will be effective November 1, 2018.  The attached letter (link below – dated August 15, 2018) was mailed out to all of our retirees in mid-August explaining the process. 

Please note that the benefit you are eligible to receive from the City towards the cost of retiree medical coverage will not change – the change will be in the method by which the contribution is paid.

A second letter was mailed out in early September providing information specific to each retiree’s premium payment. Because the letter is customized by retiree, please contact Human Resources if you do not receive the letter or need a copy. The letter includes a direct deposit form.  A link to the same direct deposit form is provided below. Please return completed direct deposit forms to City of Davis Human Resources by October 1, 2018.

A presentation on these changes was held on Monday, September 17, 2018 at 5:00 pm in the City Council Chambers.  A recording of the presentation is available below:

Janet Emmett, Human Resources Director at 530/757-5618 –

Chris Bensch, Human Resources Analyst at 530/757-5634 -
