Happy Independence Day!

Happy Fourth of July to our dedicated Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) members! We thank you for your continued support and pursuit of improved benefits for all Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) retirees.

We hope you will join TRTA Executive Director Tim Lee one week from today as he broadcasts live from Facebook and YouTube. Simply click on the links provided at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 11 to watch!

TRTA is kicking off its comprehensive effort to ensure eligible TRS annuitants receive the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) percentages passed in Senate Bill 10 during the regular 88th Legislative Session.
As our members may recall, a constitutional amendment must pass in the November 2023 General Election to ensure that the funding for the COLAs is authorized. The amendment must pass for the COLAs to become effective in January 2024. You can read more about the COLA at this link.

Members, please mark your calendars for this live event on July 11 and let your fellow retirees know about it! Tim Lee will continue these live events the second Tuesday of every month, through Election Day on November 7, 2023.

Watching the live events is easy! Just click on TRTA’s Facebook page or YouTube channel. These live events are recorded and are viewable after airing from the same links provided.

Thank you for being a member of TRTA. We are asking members to please renew their dues with TRTA if they have not done so already. If you know someone who is not a member, please invite them to join us! There is strength in numbers and the surest way for us to accomplish success is to grow the organization.
