Caring for your future.

Welcome to the City of Fresno Retirement Systems (CFRS) Web Site. This site was developed to assist our members in obtaining information about their retirement benefits and provides valuable information about CFRS and the benefits offered to our members.



City of Fresno Retirement Systems have been in contact with all sources for the most accurate and up-to-date information.  We are actively monitoring the situation, assessing risks, and are prepared to implement immediate changes to ensure a high level of safety to its members and staff as well as maintaining business continuity.  We will continue communications with our members and retirees in a timely and transparent way in order to sustain your confidence.

Providing excellent service to our members and retirees is a key objective of CFRS.  In response to the City's Emergency Work Order 2021-01, effective 12:01 am on Monday, September 13, 2021, the Retirement Office will no longer be scheduling in-person appointments and until further notice all retirement counseling/appointments will be conducted by phone or virtual appointment only. If you need to drop off documents requested by CFRS, we are requesting that all members and retirees seek benefits consultation via phone or email communications and avoid, if possible, visiting the Retirement Office. If documents are not time-sensitive or confidential in nature, most documents can be sent by email, fax, or regular US mail.  A DROP BOX is available at the "R" Street entrance of the Retirement Office located at southeast corner of 2828 Fresno Street, Fresno, CA.  For more information or assistance, please call (559) 621-7080 or email the Retirement Office.

Your retirement benefit, if direct deposited, will continue to be processed as usual. If you are still receiving your benefit by check, please note that if CFRS is forced to close our doors, processing physical checks may be difficult.  Benefits staff is currently available to change benefit to direct deposit and your benefit will be in your bank account on the last working day of every month.

CFRS  members, retirees, and visitors should continue to practice good public health hygiene. The FCDPH reminds you there are a number of steps you can take to protect your health and those around you.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough.
