Proposition B: Benefits delay approved 

City employees hired after Jan. 10, 2009, must work 20 years before they can cash in on full retiree health benefits following approval of Proposition B, which was introduced by Supervisor Sean Elsbernd. Until now, city workers needed to clock five years before gaining access to employer-funded retiree medical insurance. Additionally, new hires will contribute 2 percent of their gross salaries to help pay for those benefits — a move aimed at offsetting The City’s looming $4 billion debt on medical insurance for retirees.
