Midcareer Educator Event

As you approach retirement, understanding your CalSTRS benefits is more important than ever.

We’ve created several webinars to help you prepare for retirement. Register today to learn about the CalSTRS resources available to you and how you can save more for retirement.

Am I Saving Enough?

Although you’re going to receive a pension from CalSTRS, saving additional money for retirement is an essential part of helping you reach your retirement savings goal. But how do you know you’re saving enough? It’s about finding a balance between working long enough to receive a guaranteed income from CalSTRS and saving enough to retire comfortably.

Designed for mid-career educators, this webinar will provide you with a few scenarios to help you understand how long you might need to work, how much money you might need to save, and how you can save your money to put everything together and achieve the retirement you desire.
