SCERA mailed 1099-R forms at the end of January.
Are you a SCERA retiree or beneficiary doing your taxes at 10 pm and you can't find your 1099-R? Will you have to wait for SCERA to open in the morning to get help? Don't worry, there is a copy at your fingertips.
SCERA reports your benefits paid on a 1099-R (not a W-2). To get a duplicate copy, log into your MySCERA account. In the Benefit Information section you will find a 1099-R option. Select the print link and voila! You can finish your taxes.
Of course, you can always call SCERA if you need more assistance.
