General Information



Your CalSTRS retirement benefit is a healthy start to funding your future. But did you know that the median CalSTRS benefit replaces about 50 to 60 percent of a member’s salary? You’ll need to close any gap between your retirement goal and your retirement benefit with personal savings and investments.

That’s why we created our three Financial Awareness workshops.

We invite you to join your peers in learning how to make smart financial decisions today so you’ll be able to enjoy your future. All workshops are about two hours, with dates and locations across the state.
