Whether you are a retired City of Seattle employee, an active employee saving and planning for retirement, or an interested resident of the City, we have the information you need about the Seattle City Employees' Retirement System (SCERS).


Notice - COVID-19 and SCERS's Office Staffing

SCERS will be operating with limited staff.  SCERS has canceled in-person Board of Administration meetings, Investment Committee meetings, and all retirement planning seminars effective March 2020 until further notice.  These meetings will be conducted virtually. 

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, our customer service window and offices will be closed until further notice.  All SCERS staff are working remotely.  For assistance, we recommend you email us rather than call.  Our email address is retirecity@seattle.gov

If you have paperwork that you would like to drop off in person rather than mailing, you may place it in the Treasury drop box located on the 4th floor of the Seattle Municipal Tower.  You will find it by the cashiers windows.  Please place your document(s) in a sealed envelope with "Attention Retirement" written on it.  Staff will pick up mail on Wednesdays.

For up to date information on Covid-19, please see the King County Covid-19 website.

Thank you for your important actions to prevent risk and exposure.
