CalPERS Computer System Upgrade
and Availability During Implementation
CalPERS is consolidating 49 different computer systems into one new integrated system this September. This new system will streamline many CalPERS processes as well as decrease dependency on paper documents. During the system conversion period, Sept. 2-18, some services may be unavailable and business transactions may take longer to process. Telephone and regional office wait times may also increase. For the most up-to-date information regarding the CalPERS computer system conversion and the availability of services, go to www.calpers.ca.gov/mycalperscentral.
