As educators, your workdays start before school begins and end well after the final bell as you organize your classroom, grade papers and prepare the following day’s lesson plans.

When you finally have time to peruse retirement application forms, newsletters for teachers, or educational videos related to your pensions, you deserve simplicity, efficiency and convenience. 

With that in mind, CalSTRS today debuted a redesigned website offering an improved search function, simplified navigation and a modern style: The new design has been crafted for you and your peers, as well as your beneficiaries. visitors can now find what they need more easily. Information is organized into key areas: Members, Retirees, Employers, Forms and publications, News, Investments, About, and Contact.

The Members section is organized by career stage, including Early career, Midcareer, Near retirement and Part-time educator. Helpful videos and information on benefits planning sessions are also located under the Members tab. Forms are now searchable under the Forms and publications tab. In addition, the website automatically adjusts for use on a smart phone, tablet or computer.

The familiar red myCalSTRS login button and the site search magnifying glass remain in the top-right position on every page.

So, whether you prefer to plan for your retirement on your desktop at home, your laptop at a local coffee shop, or on the phone as you ride the commuter bus, has you covered.

We hope the new website’s user-friendly navigation tools and modern design offer a better experience for you and every other visitor.
