EIC16-3 Volume 32 Issue 3
Exemption to the Separation-From-Service Requirement

Information Circular

In response to concerns about the difficulty employers are having in hiring teachers, including substitute teachers, during the current teacher shortage, the purpose of this circular is to inform employers that existing law provides for an exemption to the separation-from-service requirement imposed immediately after retirement if the retired CalSTRS Defined Benefit Program member or Cash Balance Benefit Program participant receiving an annuity is hired in a critically needed position and meets other eligibility criteria.

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