CA Gov't Code Section 31462


“Final compensation” means the average annual compensation earnable by a member during any three years elected by a member at or before the time he or she files an application for retirement, or, if he or she fails to elect, during the three years immediately preceding his or her retirement. If a member has less than three years of service, his or her final compensation shall be determined by dividing his or her total compensation by the number of months of service credited to him or her and multiplying by 12.


This section shall not apply to a member who is subject to the California Public Employees’ Pension Reform Act of 2013 for all or any portion of his or her membership in the county retirement system.
