Info about CFA membership for retired CSU faculty
Congratulations on your retirement

Your valuable contributions have helped the CSU system to grow to its present excellent status. We appreciate your strong support of the California Faculty Association over the years.

CFA has a Retired Membership category for you to remain affiliated with us.

We have a statewide Retired Members Committee with a chairperson who brings the concerns of this group to the CFA Board of Directors.

Be assured that we are keeping a close watch on our retirement system.

It is also important to maintain your membership with our affiliates, such as CTA and NEA, especially if you are currently enrolled in one of their economic benefit programs. Being a lifetime member of the affiliate groups is an excellent idea because the power of unions to help retired groups with access to valuable economic programs, such as Medicare supplemental insurance and long-term care programs often not available to other retirees.

Retired CFA dues are currently $3 per month.

All Faculty Early Retirement Program (FERP) members will also pay the normal CFA active dues during the period they are teaching for pay. FERP members’ active dues will be deducted from their CSU pay warrant, minus the $3 retired dues ($4.67 with AAUP membership), which is deducted from the monthly PERS check.

All Retired FERP members are also eligible to contribute an additional amount of money to the CFA Political Action Committee fund (deduction through their PERS check).

We hope you will consider joining CFA as a retired faculty member.

Your colleagues still actively employed in the CSU need your support and value your experience.

Just fill out the retired membership form(same form for retirees and those in FERP) and return it to the CFA membership department. (Mail to CFA, 1110 K Street, Sacramento, CA 95814)

Thanks again for your valuable contributions, and for your support of the California State University system and of the CFA.
