Countywide Elected Officials Compensation

Countywide Elected Officials Compensation

Riverside County officials represent close to 2.2 million residents who live across 7,300 square miles. Riverside County is the fourth largest county in California stretching from Los Angeles County on the west to Arizona on the east. It’s the 11th largest county in the nation.


Elected officials 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 receive 3 percent of their salary and can retire at age 60. Public safety employees receive 3 percent of salary and can retire at age 50.

These elected officials have countywide jurisdiction and work full time.
