WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) today announced overwhelming corporate governance success during the 2014 proxy season, as 86 of the 93 companies it engaged adopted a majority voting standard in corporate board elections.
WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS), in collaboration with the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), sent the 131 California companies in their portfolios that lack women directors a letter offering their combined expertise to help diversify their boards.
The first step to take in planning for retirement is to learn more about your CalSTRS benefits by gathering information that will help you create a solid plan for a successful retirement. CalSTRS offers many ways to learn about your benefits, including tools, resources and services to assist you throughout the planning process.
As a California public school educator, you do not pay into Social Security, so you will not receive Social Security benefits for your CalSTRS-covered position.
If you expect to receive a Social Security check through your spouse or other employment, two federal rules—the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset—could leave you with a smaller Social Security check or no check at all.
Your CalSTRS retirement benefit will not be reduced by these rules.
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.
