WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Consistent with its commitment to ensuring a financially sound retirement system, the California State Teachers’ Retirement Board today voted to adopt a new set of actuarial assumptions that reflect members’ increasing life expectancies and current economic trends. Today’s decisions were based on the multi-year CalSTRS Experience Analysis, commonly referred to as the experience study, spanning July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2015.
The purpose of this directive is to add the employer contribution rate for the Reduced Workload Program and for elected officers of an employee organization adopted by the Teachers’ Retirement Board (Board) in June to previously released Employer Directive 2009-04.
The purpose of this directive is to inform employers of the regular interest and credited interest rates for the Defined Benefit (DB) Program, minimum interest for the Cash Balance (CB) Benefit Program, and the minimum interest rate for the Defined Benefit Supplement (DBS) Program.
This directive contains information for county superintendents of schools, school districts, community college districts, and any agencies that employ CalSTRS retired members to perform creditable service.
The purpose of this directive is to inform employers of required changes to the reporting of Cash Balance Voluntary Deduction Files (VDF). These requirements are fully compliant with Part 14, Chapter 4 (Employer and Participant Responsibilities) of the California Education Code, which mandates reporting of contributions and assessment of penalties.
Electronic privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a convenient means to provide customer service. Your personal information will be used only to conduct CalSTRS-related business.
