Member Benefits

Catastrophic Leave Bank

If you have 25 days or more of sick leave you may contribute 1-3 days of leave per year to NFT’s Catastrophic Leave Bank. A child of one of our NFT members has had a major accident which resulted in serious injuries. Due to the seriousness of this situation, this member will need to apply for catastrophic leave.

If you are able to donate to the bank, please complete the 'Contribute to Catastrophic Leave' form and send directly to Human Resources.

 Members may donate sick leave days throughout the year.

Retirement: Important Information

Do you have a plan for retirement? At a recent CalSTRS workshop the presenter shared how many teachers' "plan" is to work until they can't stand it anymore and "hope" they had enough to retire on. Guess what? "Hope" is not a plan.

Be familiar with your CalSTRS defined benefit plan. Start by looking at your CalSTRS statement. Have you designated a beneficiary (Page 3)? What about the Defined Benefit Supplemental account listed in the statement? How will you designate this?

How will my Social Security retirement benefits be calculated? Read the details of the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset and find out how they will affect you in your retirement.
