Basic Plan Member Brochures

Basic Plan members are those hired by the St. Paul Public Schools prior to July 1, 1978, with no breaks in service and those who did not elect to join the Coordinated Plan in 1978. The Basic Plan is a defined benefit plan. Please contact the SPTRFA office if you are a Basic Plan member needing information.
