CalPERS Membership

Membership with the California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) for retirement is based on full-time employment for more than six months or half-time employment for more than one year. Lecturers qualify for CalPERS retirement at the beginning of their third consecutive semester at half-time or greater. Membership is mandatory once an employee qualifies.
Employees excluded from CalPERS membership are covered by the CSU Part Time Retirement Plan.
