Part-Time, Seasonal, Temporary (PST) Retirement Plan

retirement

The Part-time Seasonal Temporary Plan (PST) is a savings plan created by federal law for employees who are not members of a retirement system. The PST Retirement Plan provides an opportunity for employees not covered by Social Security or by the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) to save for retirement.

Employees not covered by Social Security and excluded from participation in CalPERS must participate in the PST Plan. You may be automatically enrolled if you are:

  • part-time employee who works less than one-half time
  • seasonal employee
  • temporary and intermittent employee who works less than six months, or 125 days if employed on a daily basis, or less than 1,000 hours in a given fiscal year, if employed on an hourly basis
  • a half time employee who has less than one academic year of credited service

As a Part-time Seasonal Temp (PST) employee, you are automatically enrolled in this federally mandated PST Retirement Plan. While you are a PST Employee, 7.5% of your gross pay will be withheld from each of your paychecks and deposited into your PST account.
