The Southfield Employee Retirement System (SERS) is designed to help employees in meeting their financial needs should they retire, become disabled, or die.  Eligible employees of the City of Southfield and the 46th District Court are automatically enrolled into the SERS pension system upon employment.

The Southfield Employee Retirement System (SERS) provides retirement benefits as identified in the plan document, Chapter 9 of the City of Southfield Code, as from time to time amended by City Council ordinance, as well as modifications produced as a result of collective bargaining.  The SERS system includes all career employees of the City of Southfield and the 46th District Court, other than sworn members of the Police and Fire Departments and others excluded from membership according to the plan document.
