Why is SPTRFA membership mandatory?

Membership is mandatory upon employment, in any position requiring a license issued by the Minnesota Department of Education, with:

– St. Paul Public Schools (SPPS)
– St. Paul College (SPC) – if first employed prior to July 1, 1995
– St. Paul charter schools –  from July 1, 1995 through June 30, 2002.

SPTRFA reserves assets,  both employee and employer contributions, for long-term investment to help fund future benefits. The Minnesota Legislature mandates the contribution percentage per Minnesota State Statutes 354.A12.
