Retirement Overview

The California State University (CSU) supports the efforts of faculty and staff to plan a fulfilling, financially secure retirement. As part of its total rewards package, the CSU offers an array of retirement options to help employees meet their financial goals.
Retirement program eligibility is based on appointment type, duration, full-time equivalency (FTE) and previous public agency or reciprocal agency employment. The state-mandated retirement program is the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) and is coordinated with Social Security. Employees excluded from CalPERS membership are covered by the CSU Part-time Seasonal Retirement Plan.
To locate further information on these options, there are also voluntary savings options for supplementing CalPERS.
