STRS Member Contribution Rate Increase on July 1

Pension reform legislation passed in 2012 included increasing the member contribution rate to 14 percent. This increase has been phased in 1 percent per year. The final scheduled increase took effect on July 1, 2016, when the rate increases to 14 percent from 13 percent.
