>>>When I retire I can only collect 40% of my SS entitlement since teachers in CA have their own
retirement plan. I worked and served in the Marine Corps and earned my SS check. Because
Iam a teacher I cant get my full allotment - this is not right. Can someone help???????<<<

Teachers are not the only ones with this problem. I think almost everyone who works under Civil Service (ie, firefighters,law enforcement) have the same problem. As far as I know there has not been any major effort to try and get this changed.
