Age Factor

The age factor is the percent of final compensation you are entitled to for each year of service credit. This percentage is determined by the date you were first hired to perform CalSTRS creditable activities and your age on the last day of the month in which your retirement is effective.

For members under CalSTRS 2% at 60, your age factor is:

  • Set at 2 percent at age 60.
  • Decreased if you retire before age 60.
  • Increased to a maximum of 2.4 percent if you retire after age 60.

For members under CalSTRS 2% at 62, your age factor is:

  • Set at 2 percent at age 62.
  • Decreased if you retire before age 62.
  • Increased to a maximum of 2.4 percent if you retire after age 65.
