a retiree of the Superior Court, we are able to offer you and your
eligible dependents the same medical plan in which you are currently
enrolled. The Court's Retiree Benefit Guide (located below),
provides useful information on the Benefits offered to retirees of the
Superior Court of California, County of Kern. Additionally, you
will find the enrollment form which will need to be completed and
returned to the Court's Human Resources Department no later than 30 days following the date your retirement commences.
Any monies payable for Retiree Benefits are directly deducted from your
KCERA Pension check unless otherwise specified.
If you have "banked" vacation hours available to you and you wish to
take terminal vacation prior to the commencement of your retirement,
please complete the "Terminal Vacation Request Form" below and remit to
the Human Resources Department as soon as possible.
For further information on Retiree Benefits or Terminal Vacation, please contact Kristin Bush at 868-6173.
