AB 1469 CALSTRS Funding Plan Adopted

CALSTRS LogoDesigned to address the system’s deficit funding, the new plan took effect July 1, 2014, and it provides for a sustainable long-term future course funded through gradual increases in contributions by members, employers and the state.

Read a CALSTRS overview of AB1469 provisions

Annual Benefit Adjustment.   AB 1469 provides that the previously existing 2% Annual Benefit Adjustment will be guaranteed for members who retire after January 1, 2014. This guarantee serves as a constitutionally mandated "comparable offsetting advantage" in exchange for the increased member contributions required under the new law. For those who retired prior to January 1, 2014, no change will occur – the legislature may reduce or eliminate the annual increase in response to economic conditions. Nevertheless, no suggestions to adjust this benefit have been made, nor has this benefit been reduced or eliminated in the past.
