Please note that we are not the Retirement Administration Service Center (RASC).

RASC is the only department that can officially provide retirement counseling and information on pension and benefits. For questions on the retirement process, your pension, or retiree or survivor benefits, you will need to contact the Retirement Administration Service Center (RASC). To contact RASC, call 1-800-888-8267 or send them a secure message via your UCRAYS account. Click here for more information. Survivors and beneficiaries should call their dedicated RASC support team at 888-825-6833.

We have organized several support pages to help consolidate information on UC retirement. Click here for Retirement FAQs and Troubleshooting Information. 

The Berkeley Retirement Center can offer support on Berkeley email, Retiree IDs, and questions about retiree associations and UCBRC events. We can help point you to the right retirement resources, and provide information on ways to stay connected to campus. If you would like to chat, please contact us by email or phone, or drop by in-person during office hours.
