FROM THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF PROTECT OUR BENEFITS
SAN FRANCISCO HEALTH SERVICE SYSTEM
October is Open Enrollment Month all of you should have received your enrollment packets. Be sure to look at changes, especially involving Med-Care as to the relationship to our offered Health Plans especially in the prescription benefits. During October Health Service can offer Open Enrollment Webinars. Everything is now being done online, it’s the sign of the times. COVID hastened this process. But after working through the kinks, it seems to be working fine. But the phones are still operative SFHSS Member Service 1-628-652-4700 or Toll-free 1-800-541-2266. Remember, if you are getting suspicious health-care related phone calls, HANG UP!!!! As far as your health is concerned, YOU ARE YOUR BEST ADVOCATE.
SAN FRANCISCO EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT SYSTEM (SFERS)
If you’ve been watching the stock market you can see it has been doing crazy things. There is heightened volatility considering COVID-19, changes in China including the fate of Evergrande, one of China’s largest property developers, the potential shutdown of the U.S. government, and the specter of inflation and rising interest rates. In September assets were down an estimated -0.85%. But SFERS generated an estimated return of 3.01% for the quarter. For the calendar year, SFERS has generated an estimated return of 18.09% through September 30th. SFERS estimated assets at the end of August are $36.1 Billion. It’s amazing in these times SFERS is doing so well. Thank-You SFERS Staff. The decision to merge the CFO/CIO jobs is still being discussed.
