California State Public Plans – CalPERS and CalSTRS

Whether a CalPERS member or the ex-spouse, there will be basic questions on how to divide the largest public retirement plan in California.  We will discuss what to watch out for during the case with an active member vs. a retired member, how estimates on which way to divide may be helpful, how to handle disability, and the biggest pitfalls with a CalPERS division.

  • Division methods for state public defined benefit plans;
  • Issue Spotting;
  • Disability; and
  • Drafting judgment language for defined benefit pension plans.
