As a California public school educator, you do not contribute to Social Security, so you will notreceive a Social Security benefit for your CalSTRS-covered employment when you retire.
If you are counting on Social Security through your spouse or other employment, read this fact sheet carefully. Two federal rules, the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset, may leave you with a smaller Social Security check or possibly no check at all.
These rules affect only your Social Security benefit. Your CalSTRS retirement benefit will not change.
