Abstract: A ring $ R$ with an identity is a (right) Steinitz ring provided any linearly independent subset of a free (right) $ R$-module can be extended to a basis for the module by adjoining elements from any given basis. In this paper, we characterize those group rings which are Steinitz rings by the following:

Theorem. The group ring $ R[G]$ is a Steinitz ring if and only if $ R$ is a Steinitz ring and either (1) char $ R = {p^i}$ and $ G$ is a finite $ p$-group or (2) char $ R = 0$ and $ G = 1$.
