The seats are for five-year terms. Those running on the retiree side include incumbent and former UOG president Wilfred Leon Guerrero; incumbent and former speaker Joe T. San Agustin; and former Department of Labor director George Santos. For the active member seat, those running include DOA director Tony Blaz; incumbent and GPA computer operations supervisor James Duenas, incumbent and UOG vice president of administration and finance David O'brien and GHURA A/E manager Albert Santos.

The election is set for Saturday June 14 at the Retirement Fund Building in Maite from 10am to 4pm.
