CalSTRS is proud to offer in-person services and outreach events across California. But as a massive state—larger than Austria, Belgium and Switzerland combined—we recognize it may be difficult to get to one of our seven member service centers.

Or, you may be staying off the road to avoid summer traffic or you may simply prefer digital interaction rather than visiting in person. We understand. That’s why we also offer virtual services via our website and over the phone.

myCalSTRS is a convenient and secure online portal where you can manage your retirement anywhere, anytime.

Register at and become one of the more than 700,000 CalSTRS members who have already joined. The process is simple and includes a self-paced, interactive registration guide.

On myCalSTRS, you can:

  • Access your Retirement Progress Report and view your account balances.
  • Manage your beneficiary elections and direct deposit account.
  • View and update tax withholdings.
  • Print your 1099-R form and benefit payment statements.
  • Complete and submit forms, including the Service Retirement Application.
  • Ask questions and receive prompt, secure answers.
  • Request e-delivery of newsletters, statements and notifications.

Watch our series of help videos to learn about resetting your password; enrolling, updating or canceling direct deposit; and requesting a Verification of Benefits letter.

We recognize everyone has different needs. That’s why myCalSTRS is there for you around the clock every day.
