Last week, the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) reported that the Board of Trustees of the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) approved several changes to the TRS-Care retiree health insurance program. You may read TRTA’s update about those changes by clicking here.

TRTA has received several questions from members regarding these changes. Please know that we are working closely with TRS to receive answers to your questions, and that we will update our members with this new information as soon as it becomes available.

Additionally, TRS is working hard to respond to all TRS-Care participants with details about their specific health care plan and how they will be impacted by the changes. In the meantime, this release from TRS may be helpful to our members, as well as the links provided below:
