One of myCalSTRS’ fans is Denise Bradford—a kindergarten teacher from Orange County who is currently serving on the Teachers’ Retirement Board.
“Create an account and use the calculator to see how much money you really need to retire, how long you need to work and the perfect age to retire—so you’ll be able to have a happy, healthy retirement,” Bradford said.
Ask your employer to place a visual myCalSTRS or CalSTRS.com badge on their intranet (internal internet) so you’ll be able to easily access your CalSTRS information and learn more about your benefits.
