Don't raise the teacher retirement age
Public hearings have been held on a bill to increase the teacher retirement age. Tell your legislators in the Assembly and Senate not to pass this legislation. Here's more on the bill:
- SB 612 / AB 670 would raise the minimum retirement age for teachers to 59.5, who can now retire at 55. Under the proposal, retired public employees could work up to 36 months while collecting their pensions. The bill would apply to employees under the age of 40. While the bill would apply to teachers, a primarily female workforce, it would not apply to employees in male-dominated fields of protective services, including police officers, firefighters, most correctional officers and the state patrol.
