Your Association Is Ready To Help


In addition to representing the collective interests of its members with regard to pension and health care benefits, CSU-ERFSA membership also provides additional benefits including:

  • A grant program that provides funds to members that can be used for several purposes
  • Advice and guidance for retirees in the Faculty Early Retirement Program (FERP) who are threatened with layoff.
  • Guidance to members in dealing with or responding to adverse administrative decisions affecting them, including decisions affecting pension or health benefits.
  • Assistance, information, advice, and support to campus retiree organizations.  Fifteen percent of the dues paid by CSU-ERFSA members retired from campuses with affiliated retiree organizations are returned to those campus organizations. 

Pension Protection


We're the organization guarding your retirement income from legislative changes that could reduce your pension. We've been fighting for years, and this is no time to stop. Pensions could be questioned here and all over the country at any time.

Together, we can defend pensions. CSU-ERFSA works tirelessly in the California legislature to protect your future pension benefits. An experienced lobbyist, paid by CSU-ERFSA, provides legislative representation, proposes legislation, obtains sponsors and testifies on behalf of CSU-ERFSA members at legislative committee meetings.

Access To Benefits


When you retire, you often lose benefits such as dental, vision, and other insurance. Your state benefits, and even Medicare, might not cover you in these areas. In fact, there's no out-of-pocket maximum.

The good news? Your membership gives you access to a wide range of quality insurance plans. As a member, you'll enjoy access to policies designed to protect your medical and financial well-being--everything from life insurance to Medicare supplement plans. And, thanks to our strength in numbers, you can enroll in the coverage you need at discounted group rates.

Social Opportunities


Looking forward to meeting others and socializing again? Join CSU-ERFSA now and be ready for future opportunities like nights out with friends old and new, group travel, volunteering, and more. And that's just the beginning. You'll be invited to meetings and other events that will keep you connected to like-minded people.

Research shows that social connection is critical to our mental, physical and emotional health. That's reason alone to join. Become a member today and be among friends.
