7920 State Teachers' Retirement System
Mission Statement

The California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS) administers retirement benefits for 868,493 (as of June 30, 2013) active and retired educators in public schools from pre-kindergarten through the community college system in California. Benefits include retirement, disability, and survivor's retirement benefits.

CalSTRS is governed by the Teachers' Retirement Board. The California Constitution provides that the Teachers' Retirement Board has authority over the administration of the retirement system; therefore, while the budget data presented here is subject to a Budget Act appropriation, the proposed appropriations are not reviewed or approved by the Governor.
