WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. (March 10, 2022) – The California State Teachers’ Retirement System today debuted a redesigned website offering an improved search function, simplified navigation and a modern style: CalSTRS.com. The new design focuses on California’s public school educators and their beneficiaries.
CalSTRS.com visitors can now find what they need more easily. Information is organized into key areas: Members, Retirees, Employers, Forms and publications, News, Investments, About, and Contact.
The Members section is organized by career stage, including Early career, Midcareer, Near retirement and Part-time educator. Helpful videos and information on benefits planning sessions are also located under the Members tab. Forms are now searchable under the Forms and publications tab. In addition, the website automatically adjusts for use on a smart phone, tablet or computer.
The familiar red myCalSTRS login button and the website search magnifying glass remain in the top right position on every page.
“We used industry best practices to create a new, improved website with CalSTRS members in mind,” said Communications Director Karen Doron. “The simple navigation and modern design also offer a better experience for all visitors.”
Teachers’ Retirement Board meeting dates and agendas are found in the About section, along with additional CalSTRS organizational information, including extensive details on CalSTRS’ commitment to sustainability. The Investments tab includes the latest total fund assets, updates on the path to a net zero greenhouse gas emissions portfolio, investment reports and much more.
