CalSTRS reports $64 billion deficit

The Tribune

The trust fund that provides pensions to the state’s retired teachers has a $64 billion deficit and would need a $4.5 billion-per-year infusion of revenue to become fully solvent, according to a new internal study.

The California State Teachers’ Retirement System produced the report in response to a legislative resolution.

Its release came just days after the Legislature’s budget analyst, Mac Taylor, indirectly chided Gov. Jerry Brown for ignoring “huge unfunded liabilities associated with the teachers’ retirement system and state retiree health benefits” in his new budget.
