CalSTRS Pay Dates

Scheduled dates for benefits paid in 2014, which include direct deposits received in January 2015, are listed in the table below. Mailing dates are determined by the State Controller’s Office, the check issuer.

Payments are made in arrears, meaning the amount you receive each month is the payment for the prior month’s benefit. CalSTRS benefit checks are sent in the mail or electronically if you have direct deposit.
