Part-time, Seasonal and Temporary (PST) Employees Retirement Program

What is PST?

Part-time, seasonal and temporary (PST) employees hired by the State of California or the California State University (CSU) system whose wages do not qualify for Social Security deductions or membership in the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) are required to participate in PST. The Department of Human Resources’ Savings Plus Program (Savings Plus) administers PST, an eligible 457(b) Plan under the Internal Revenue Code. Your HR office determines who qualifies for PST.
