Defined Benefit Supplement Program 

The Defined Benefit Supplement is a hybrid cash balance plan for Defined Benefit members that provides additional savings for retirement.

Funds come from compensation earned from service in one school year in excess of one year of service credit and limited-term salary increases. From January 1, 2001, through December 31, 2010, funds came from 25 percent of your monthly CalSTRS contribution.
