Retirement is a special time.  

Explore the world, pursue a dream, donate your time … so many options!

CalRTA is helping you make that journey.

For more than 80 years, we’ve been the tireless watchdog for California’s retired educators. Our first priority is to protect and enhance the pensions of CalSTRS members, but we also provide a social network of fellow educators, exclusive discounts on insurance, travel, entertainment and opportunities to give back and get involved.

But there is strength in numbers.

We’d love to welcome you to the CalRTA family. Dues are kept purposely low to honor the years of service you’ve given to California … just $45 per year.  Less than the cost of dinner out.
