Joining Your Retirement Family

Saying hello to retirement does not mean saying goodbye to workplace family and friends. It means a chance to join another community—the Retired Employees of San Diego County.

RESDC is dedicated to being an advocate for retirees and providing pertinent retiree information and services to its 6,700+ members, said RESDC Executive Director Mark Nanzer.

“We’re focused on our connection to the County,” said Nanzer. “And on protecting the interests of all County employees and retirees.”

Plus, the nonprofit knows how to have fun! RESDC’s annual summer Flag Day celebration, autumn health fair and picnic, and festival holiday luncheon are some of its most popular social events. Last year, they held an outing to a Padres’ game and an evening at the theater. And, they are an active Live Well San Diego partner.

Because some retirees are more active than ever, RESDC also helps connect members with volunteer opportunities such as the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, Retired & Senior Volunteer Program and AARP Experience Corps.

Start daydreaming of your retirement now. Read up on what RESDC offers members:

Keeping You Informed

The organization holds three annual general meetings highlighting relevant retiree issues through professional speakers including representatives from Aging and Independence Services.

The newsletter—The NETWORK—is available in print and online. Plus, the organization is on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Providing Benefits and Discounts

RESDC offers group benefits including dental and vision programs, travel insurance, pet insurance and discounted home and vehicle insurance. Plus, a variety of discounts are available to members including tickets to movie theaters and amusement parks. Members also get a sweet deal on See’s Candies.

Advocating for You

The RESDC Board of Directors works closely with the San Diego County Employees Retirement Association (SDCERA) Board of Retirement, the Board of Supervisors and statewide county retiree associations on behalf of retirees.

Membership is open to all County retirees for $5 per month or $60 per year. Non-voting active employee memberships are available for $12 per year.
