Know Your Retirement Review Score

Your 2018 Retirement Review statement is waiting at

This annual statement projects your monthly retirement income (if you stay on track) from UC’s retirement benefits plans: UC Retirement Plan (pension) and UC Retirement Savings Program accounts (403(b), 457(b) and DC plans). A retirement readiness score shows your expected retirement income as a percentage of your current pay.

Your Retirement Review is interactive, allowing you to personalize your score by updating your retirement age or factoring in additional sources of income such as Social Security, other savings, or your spouse or partner’s retirement assets. You can also model how additional savings could help you reach your retirement income goals, and, if you choose (and subject to IRS limits), add or change your voluntary contributions.

Visit and follow the “See Your Retirement Review” link. Have your NetBenefits login ready or register using the last 4 digits of your social security number. Happy crunching.
