CalSTRS Unaffected by Federal Government Shutdown

What's New

CalSTRS operations, services and benefit payments are unaffected by the federal shutdown prompted by Congressional failure to pass a continuing resolution to keep the federal government funded past October 1, 2013.

CalSTRS is not an entity of the federal government and is not subject to the shutdown. CalSTRS will continue to:

  • Pay benefits to members and their families.
  • Maintain normal CalSTRS office hours.
  • Process benefit applications.
  • Allow access to member information via myCalSTRS.

Mailings of checks, publications and other communications via the U.S. Postal Service will not be affected because postal operations are considered vital and will, therefore, continue.
