SBCERA Members* do not participate in Social Security. In other
words, your earnings from your SBCERA-covered employment are not
covered under Social Security.
Most SBCERA Members do participate in Medicare. Medicare is
our country’s health insurance program for people age 65 or
older. SBCERA will generally notify you to apply for Medicare
before you reach age 65. You should apply even if you do not
intend to retire yet.
