WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. (April 15, 2019) – California State Teachers’ Retirement System announced that trustee Sharon Hendricks was elected to the PRI Association Board. As an independent organization, PRI encourages investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks.
Sections 23004 and 26301 of the Education Code require employers to submit a report monthly to the system containing information as the board may require in the administration of the plan. Two documents incorporated by reference in the California Code of Regulations (CalSTRS’ F496 File Specification and CalSTRS’ Voluntary Deduction File [VDF] Specification) specify the format for employer reports for the Defined Benefit and Cash Balance Benefit programs.
Chapter 2 interprets and makes specific Education Code Sections 22112.5, 22119.2 and 22905, related to classes of employees, creditable compensation and the appropriate crediting of contributions to either the Defined Benefit Program or the Defined Benefit Supplement Program.
The California Education Code requires the assessment of penalties and interest for late or inaccurate reporting of retirement data and payment of contributions from employers. Late and inaccurate data result in inaccurate benefit payments and late contributions result in lost investment opportunities. These regulations ensure consistent and transparent assessment of penalties and interest in accordance with current laws.
Electronic privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a convenient means to provide customer service. Your personal information will be used only to conduct CalSTRS-related business.
