CalPERS is about people. It is about the dedicated individuals who serve, or have served, California at the state, regional, and local level through a career in public service. For more than eight decades, CalPERS has built retirement and health security for these public servants. As the nation’s largest public pension fund, our Mission & Vision ensure that our members' benefits and earned retirements are as enduring as the state they maintain.

To support our members, we also invest in the health and infrastructure of the Golden State itself – building portfolios that bolster local business and funding enterprises that directly influence and stimulate our economy. We have an unwavering commitment to financial security in retirement. The long-term nature of our benefits reflects our long-term investing horizon and our commitment to generations of public employees.

Our pension fund serves more than 1.9 million members in the CalPERS retirement system and administers benefits for 1.5 million members and their families in our health program.
