• Retirement Benefits
    The District offers a Retirement Benefits Program for qualified retirees and their dependents.  This program provides a continuation of District-paid medical and dental coverage.
     
    If you have ten or more years of SAUSD service in a "benefited position" you may qualify for the Retirement Benefits Program.
     
    "Benefited position" means you were eligible for health insurance coverage.  Your years of service are counted whether or not you were enrolled in an SAUSD plan while in the "benefited position".
     
    Most your questions about the Retirement Benefits Program will be answered through the Frequently Asked QuestionsPlease read through the Retirement Benefits FAQs for details regarding eligibility, rights and responsibilities, and Medicare enrollment requirements.
