Amendments to Format for Employer Reports
The California State Teachers’ Retirement System and the Teachers’ Retirement Board propose to adopt amended regulations in sections 27000 through 27002, Article 15.5, Chapter 1 and sections 27702 and 27703, Article 1, Chapter 3 of Division 3, Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations and new regulations, in the form of sections 27800 and 27801 in new Article 2 of Chapter 3, Division 3, Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations, after considering all comments, objections and recommendations regarding the proposed action.
Education Code sections 23004 and 26301 require employers to submit a report monthly or each pay period, respectively, to CalSTRS containing information the board may require in the administration of the Teachers’ Retirement Plan. That report must be submitted electronically in an encrypted format provided by CalSTRS that ensures the security of the transmitted member and participant data. In addition, Education Code section 22455 requires county superintendents and other employing agencies to furnish any information concerning any member or beneficiary the board may require in a form, including electronic transmission, as directed by CalSTRS.
The regulations proposed in these amendments make specific the Education Code as it relates to the submission of data from employers to the system using the new file format.
