Support AB 1667
Use this form to support AB 1667 (Cooper), which will protect retired educators from employer miscalculations and reporting mistakes that break the pension promise.
Teacher retirees have faced many challenges throughout their careers and should not have issues with their retirement benefits and distributions following decades of public service.
An absence of clear and accurate guidance on what is, and is not, creditable has not been provided and has caused incorrect information to be reported to CalSTRS. This has led to a retiree’s benefits being modified after retirement, sometimes years later.
AB 1667 seeks to protect these promised benefits by establishing a process that promotes accuracy and transparency. The bill will ensure retired members are not held liable for prior overpayments, except in cases of “member error.”
