Board Members Compensation

Board Members Compensation

Riverside County officials represent  2.2 million residents who live across 7,300 square miles. Riverside County is the fourth largest county in California stretching from Orange County on the west to Arizona on the east. It’s the 11th largest county in the nation.


Board members work full time and each represents an average of 450,000 residents. Board members’ salary is set by county ordinance. Supervisors receive a salary roughly equivalent to 80 percent of Riverside County Superior Court judges' salary.

Most elected officials also participate in CalPERS, the state’s pension system. Pensions are based on a formula that includes years of public service, salary at time of retirement, and age. Elected officials are among county employees who may receive a retirement benefit of 3 percent of their salary per year of service if they retire at age 60. Public safety employees may receive a retirement benefit of 3 percent of salary per year of service if they retire at age 50.
