Thinking about Retiring?

If so, we highly recommend you meet with a retirement counselor 3-5 years prior to your anticipated retirement date to determine your unique set of retirement benefits. Your age, years worked, sick days, and other particular facts will determine your individual retirement package.

State Teachers' Retirement System (STRS) has recently changed its sites for counselor appointments. Beginning Monday, May 21, 2018 and each 3rd Week of Every Month thereafter a CalSTRS (California State Teachers Retirement System) representative will be available. To consult/schedule individual and group appointments with CTA members call 1-800-228-5453, ext. 3 with a CalSTRS representative.

CTA Office: 3900 Mitchell Road, Ceres, CA 95307
