Dear Member,
The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) requires all members hired after
January 1, 2013 complete the Reciprocal Self-Certification Form (PERS-EAMD-801) to provide essential
information that will be used by your employer to enroll you in CalPERS membership.
This form obtains information regarding your membership in other qualifying public retirement systems
and must be returned to your employer within 10 business days of receipt. Use the instructions provided
on the back of the form and reference the List of Qualifying Public Retirement Systems for assistance.
Information regarding your membership in a defined benefit plan for any of the listed qualifying public
retirement system must be provided. However, information related to CalPERS membership should
not be included when completing this form, as this data is already stored in the CalPERS system.
It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information you provide.
Inaccurate information may result in adjustments to your account which could lead to adverse impacts
such as incurring financial obligations that you and your employer will be responsible to fulfill.
For more information regarding the Reciprocal Self-Certification Form, please visit our website at
www.calpers.ca.gov.
Please note: The completion of the Reciprocal Self-Certification Form does not establish reciprocity, nor
is it a request to establish reciprocity. To request that reciprocity be established, download the When
You Change Retirement Systems (PUB 16) publication to obtain the Confirmation of Intent to Establish
Reciprocity When Changing Retirement Systems (PERS-CASD-255) form. This publication is available at
