If you’re a part-time educator working for more than one employer or in multiple assignments and pay into the CalSTRS Defined Benefit Program, there are special considerations you should think about as you near retirement. This webinar will take an in-depth look at an example of how both service credit and final compensation are calculated and can affect your retirement formula. You’ll also learn steps you can take that could help you maximize your monthly retirement benefit.
The Cash Balance Benefit Program is an alternative CalSTRS retirement plan specifically created for part-time, substitute, adjunct and temporary educators that offers retirement, survivor and disability benefits.

If you plan to retire under the Defined Benefit Program, the amount of service credit you have at retirement is important for calculating your CalSTRS retirement benefit.

Find out if consolidating your benefits is right for you, and the process to do so, by attending this webinar.
If you’re like the average part-time educator, you’ll likely receive approximately 38% of your final salary as your CalSTRS retirement benefit. Financial experts suggest replacing 80% to 90% of your salary in order to retire comfortably. Due to this gap, you’ll need to save additional money for retirement. In this webinar, you’ll learn about CalSTRS Pension2, a supplemental savings plan to help you meet your retirement income goals. You’ll understand how valuable saving even a little money today can benefit you by the time you retire. Plus, you’ll learn how to compare Pension2 to the other plans your employer offers. Our goal is to help you achieve a comfortable retirement. Saving with Pension2 is a large piece of that puzzle.
