The VCERA Member Portal is a password-protected, self-service web portal where you can conveniently view key elements of your retirement account. The portal is designed to give VCERA members up-to-date access to the retirement information most relevant to them:
VCERA will withhold federal and state (California only) income taxes from your monthly retirement benefit according to the preferences you indicated on the Federal/State Income Tax Withholding Form. You may a) elect a specific percentage, b) use the standard tax tables, or c) designate a fixed amount of federal and state tax withholdings. You can update your preferences at any time in writing. A qualified tax advisor can assist you in determining the appropriate withholding amounts.
VCERA does not administer retiree health benefits and thus cannot answer questions about such plans. For information on your eligibility in the County’s medical, dental and vision care plans, contact the Ventura County Human Resources Department at (805) 662-6791.
