Categories of Membership

Regular membership is open to all retired faculty, librarians, and academic administrators who are CalPERS annuitants. These individuals become regular members of the Association upon application and payment of annual dues (first year membership is free).

Associate membership may be granted to faculty, librarians, and academic administrators with retired status in other accredited institutions of higher learning; San Jose State University pre-retirees (reduced time base); spouses of deceased members of the San Jose State University Emeritus and Retired Faculty Association; and counselors. Associate members have the same rights and privileges in the organization as regular members and pay the same dues as regular members.
