A Modesto Increase in Age of Retirement Eligibility for City Employees, Measure S Advisory Vote ballot question was on the November 8, 2011 ballot for voters in the City of Modesto in Stanislaus County, where it was approved.

Measure S asked the city's voters for their advice on whether the minimum retirement age for city workers should be increased. At present, the retirement age is 50 for police officers and firefighters, and 55 for all other city employees.

Measure S was one of three advisory votes on the November 8, 2011 ballot that invited the city's voters to consider a range of proposals for how the city might deal with city employee retirement benefits. Modesto's pensions are funded through CalPERS and cost the city about $20 million a year, not including the city's cost of health benefits for retired city workers. Modesto currently allows city workers to retire at age 50 with up to 90% of their pay.[1]
