Part-Time Retirement Program
The Federal Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1990 requires that part-time, seasonal, or temporary public
employees who are not members of a retirement system be covered either by a qualified retirement
plan or by Social Security. This requirement applies to California State University (CSU)
employees who are presently excluded from membership in the California Public Employees'
Retirement System (CalPERS). (See CalPERS Section for CalPERS eligibility.)
Currently, all non-CalPERS eligible employees are
placed into the: Part-Time, Seasonal, Temporary Employees Retirement (PST) Program - Section 457 Deferred
Compensation Plan - Administered by the Department of Personnel Administration (DPA) under
the Savings Plus Program.
