Marin School District Top Retiree Pensions 2018

Thanks to Robert Fellner, Transparent California, for putting together this vital information on Marin County School District retiree pensions.

“Only” two exceed the $210,000 IRS limit – one in the Sausalito / Marin City School District and one in the Novato Unified School District.

The SacBee article, Hundreds of California School Administrators Have Pensions Above IRS Limits, is linked here for further information on the IRS limit.

Robert noted that CalSTRS data does not have job titles, so he could not narrow the list to administrative retirees, but it’s unlikely that teachers would receive anywhere near these amounts.

The list below contains the highest paid Marin school district retiree pension recipients.
