Retirement System Balances Online
UC employees can now view their own University of California Retirement System account balances online. To do so, click on the "UCRS Account Balances" icon on the right side of the UC HR/Benefits Web site (http://www.ucop.edu/bencom) and follow the logon procedures to see these balances:
Tax-Deferred 403(b) Plan, including any 403(b) Plan loan balance
Defined Contribution Plan -- Pretax and After-Tax Accounts

Note: UCRS account balances include only money invested with UC. For online access to accounts with Fidelity or Calvert, go to Fidelity NetBenefits (http://netbenefits.non-profits.com) or to the Calvert Group's site (www.CalvertGroup.com/index.stm) and follow their procedures.
The UC-managed funds are valued monthly, at the end of each month, and account balances are updated with the new values around the middle of the following month. Balances reflect any distributions processed through the end of the previous business day.
