CalPERS retirement system

One of the benefits of working as a faculty member for the CSU is membership in the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS).  This organization provides retirement and health benefits to more than 1.6 million public employees, retirees, and their families and more than 2,500 employers. California State University faculty members have benefits negotiated as part of the employment contract.

Knowledge of benefits
Learning about the benefits of a faculty member early on is a tremendous advantage, since decisions made early in your career impact the benefits you will eventually receive.  There are numerous publications and workshops that will help new and continuing members navigate the resources and make decisions to their advantage.
