This record group consists of subject files of the California State Teachers' Retirement System, including information on
its method of organization, its rules, and members' benefits.
In 1913, a retirement system known as the Public School Teachers' Retirement Salary Fund and Permanent Fund was established
under Chapter 694. The system's purpose was to provide retirement salaries to public school teachers who were involved in
and planned to retire from the California state school system. The Retirement Salary Fund Board was in charge of administering
the benefit programs of the retirement system and the funds associated with them. This Board was one of the functions of the
State Board of Education. Not until 1963 did the system's controlling board become independent of the Department of Education.
