CTA Endorsed Retirement Savings Plan
Webinar September 28, 2017
3:45-4:15 PM

It’s never too soon to think about retirement! Or never too late! Plan ahead and be prepared. Your CalSTRSpension will only cover about half of the income you will need in retirement. CTA has created a retirement savings plan to help you make up the difference. The CTA Retirement Savings Plan is designed with your best interest in mind and is the only 403(b) plan endorsed by CTA. Join us for a 30 minutes webinar to learn more about your union plan.
Topics covered:
  • Save for retirement
  • 403(b)
  • Tax advantages
  • Benefits of CTA’s 403(b)
  • Investments
  • Action to take

President's Message

Welcome to the 2017-18 School year. I hope you had a
relaxing summer and were able to spend your well
deserved time with family and friends doing the things you
love. Also, congratulations on surviving your first week of
school and hitting the trifecta. Last year we successfully
passed Prop 55, Bond WV, and extended District of
Choice for 6 more years. That's impressive! It couldn't
have been accomplished without all of us putting in extra
time to make phone calls, emailing , and posting on social
media. Thank you for a job well done.
This year has started off very busy. We welcomed 54
new members at the New Teacher Orientation. Woohoo!!!
During the summer many of you sat on interview panels to
hire people at the secondary and elementary levels. Thank
you for helping our new colleagues acclimate to Walnut
Valley.
Along with much hope this year also brings
uncertainties. The continuing attack on our professional
association is at an all time high. The potential loss of
agency fee is looming. Agency fee is monies paid to
associations by members and nonmembers for collective
bargaining services such as compensation, health
benefits, and working conditions. The association needs
the monetary resources to maintain and enhance those
collectively bargained services that vital to us and our
families. Remember we are stronger together!
In Unity,

Lisa Peterson
