          CalSTRS Member Contribution Rate Increases on 07/01/14


          Assembly Bill 1469 signed into law by the Governor as part of the 2014/2015 state budget increases STRS member contributions on compensation that is creditable to the Defined Benefit Program.  This had previously been set at a rate of 8% of gross pay.  Effective July 1, 2014 the STRS member contribution rate will increase to 8.15%.  As a result, CalSTRS members (primarily certificated employees) will see an increase to the deduction taken for pension contributions effective on the July monthly payroll.

        • Social Security Payroll Tax for 2013 will revert back to 6.2% for employees, the historical rate of payroll tax, beginning January 1, 2013.  For tax years 2011 and 2012, the federal government had in force a temporary tax holiday of 4.2% for employees.  This is not a new increase in the rate but rather a return to the historical rate.
