Why was the longevity bonus ended on 12/31/2010? Will it be reinstated?

Ask Jack Jack Ehnes

AB 1933 (Strom-Martin) was enacted in 2000 to encourage members to stay in the profession longer to address shortages in the classroom that were occurring at that time. The bill included a sunset date, which means that provisions of the bill would not apply to members who achieved at least 30 years of service after December 31, 2010.

CalSTRS is not aware of any legislation that would reinstate the longevity bonus.
