CalPERS/CalSTRS Decision Tree Discontinued
Supersedes Employer Information Circular Volume 25; Issue 11 (EIC09-11)
This employer information circular is to inform employers to discontinue the use of the CalPERS/CalSTRS Decision Tree.
The CalPERS/CalSTRS Decision Tree was developed as a job aid to help employers in determining if an employee is eligible to make a retirement system election or permissive membership election. It was not intended to take precedence over the law. CalSTRS does not rely on the scenarios outlined in the CalPERS/CalSTRS Decision Tree when determining retirement system election or permissive membership election eligibility; therefore, we are discontinuing the use of the CalPERS/CalSTRS Decision Tree.
Employer Information Circulars [EIC] are sent to school district and community college employers as informal guidance that provides immediate information on a single topic.
