Board Members' Compensation

Board of Supervisors' Compensation

Board members work full time and each represents an average of 450,000 residents. Board members’ salary is set by county ordinance. Supervisors receive a salary roughly equivalent to 80 percent of Riverside County Superior Court judges' salary.

Most elected officials also participate in CalPERS, the state’s pension system. Pensions are based on a formula that includes years of public service, salary at time of retirement and age. Elected officials are among county employees who may receive a retirement benefit of 3 percent of their salary per year of service if they retire at age 60. Public safety employees may receive a retirement benefit of 3 percent of salary per year of service if they retire at age 50.
