RETRO PAY UPDATE
 
 

Per the GGUSD business department retro for the retirees will be paid on the same schedule and time line as the other GGEA members. For those who retired as of June 30, 2018, their retro will be paid on November 30, 2018. They will receive hard checks, not direct deposit. 

OCDE retirement notified the business department that for STRS retirement reporting purposes, they will have to split the Certificated retro payment (1% and 2%) to two different reporting periods. The initial plan was to pay it all (increase and all retro) on the November check.  They will now pay the increased monthly amount, along with the 1% retro on the November payroll, and pay the 2% retro on December payroll cycle (paid on January 2nd).
