Saving for retirement may seem far from your mind right now, but supplemental savings are essential to ensuring you have enough money to retire comfortably. Due to compound interest, saving earlier in your career is far more valuable than saving later. The CalSTRS Pension2® program works in tandem with your Defined Benefit Program and Defined Benefit Supplement accounts. Join this online workshop to see why saving now with Pension2 is important.
This interactive online workshop provides more in-depth information about your benefits, earned and purchased service credit, and the gap between your CalSTRS benefit and your retirement income goal, plus ways to bridge it.
