DESCRIPTION
Incumbency in this class is limited to individuals who are retired from regular employment in the Alameda County Fire Department (ACFD). Appointees are assigned the full range of duties of another presently non-safety existing class and perform those duties in the capacity of a limited term appointee to the Fire Department Retired Annuitant class.

The class exists to facilitate the temporary reemployment of retirees pursuant to California Government Code Sections 7522.56, 21220.5 and 8558, CalPERS laws, IRS regulations, and any other applicable laws and regulations, thereby effecting appointment without reinstating the appointee to active status in a retirement system and without termination or suspension of his/her retirement allowances. The nature of this class, including its unique appointment standards and limitations as to the nature and duration of incumbency, reflects the requirements of those sections of the Government Code.

• Fire Department Retired Annuitants do not have specifically assigned duties. Appointees are assigned the responsibilities of another “non-safety” class in the ACFD.

• The appointment of a specific individual to this position is limited to a maximum of 120 working days or 960 working hours, whichever is greater, in any one fiscal year or other twelve-month period specified by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.
