One-time off-salary schedule payments

August 3, 2021

As additional one-time funding is being disbursed to schools, new payments to faculty are being approved, and we are receiving questions about the creditability of this compensation. One of the more common types of payments offered are widely referred to as one-time off-salary schedule payments. These payments are called by a variety of names and have a variety of purposes but are generally limited-term payments that are not associated with additional service, are not scheduled to continue and are only being paid due to additional one-time funding.

This Employer Circular does not take precedence over the law; it is meant to clarify how school districts and county offices of education should report to CalSTRS.

Employer Information Circulars [EIC] are sent to school district and community college employers as informal guidance that provides immediate information on a single topic.
