Staff & Faculty Payroll Deduction

Payroll Deduction Program 2014-15

Eligibility for Payroll Deductions

Any UCSC Staff or Faculty member working who is currently on payroll for the year for more than 50% time.  When you sign up you must have your UCSC Staff ID number and a photo ID.   If you are renewing bring your prior OPERS Membership Card. 


Flat rate of $20 per month. Continuing and ongoing until you request cancellation. 

Can I and how do I sign up my spouse/domestic partner/child on my payroll deductions and get their cards?

Payroll Deduction can only be used to pay for your membership. It cannot be used to pay for spouse, domestic partner or dependant memberships. 

How do I sign up?

If you have never had a membership card come by our office with your UCSC Staff ID Card (a white paper card with the Chancellor's signature), a photo ID and be prepared to have your picture taken.  The office is located on the second floor of the East Field House.  Office hours are 9 am – 5 pm, Monday through Friday. 

How do I renew (this only applies to current 2013-14 memberships that were already on payroll deduction)?

To renew your card fill out a Payroll Deduction Authorization Form and a Facility Waiver and mail it to OPERS through campus mail. (Mail stop is OPERS.)
