The Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) welcomes its members to fall! Now that the weather is about to be cooler, TRTA hopes our members will show a warm welcome to friends and colleagues who have not yet joined TRTA and encourage them to join the only association in Texas working solely to protect and improve benefits for our retired educators!

You and Your Friend Could Win $100!

October is the perfect time to bring a neighbor, former coworker, or even an active educator who is planning to retire within the next year to your TRTA local unit meeting. Not a member of a local unit? Please consider attending a meeting in your area (visit this online calendar to see a list of available meetings).

Be sure to enter TRTA’s Bring a Friend Contest, where you and a friend could each win $100!

Current TRTA members can get a friend or colleague to join TRTA for the first time and both the current and new member will be entered to win a $100 gift card. If you win, your friend wins too! In total, three pairs of TRTA friends will win and there’s $600 up for grabs! The contest ends November 15, 2019.

Tell Your Friends about TRTA!

TRTA is focused on reaching 100,000 members. We are very close to our goal with a current membership of more than 88,000! The more members we have, the more influence we have as an advocacy group as we lobby the Texas Legislature and Congress.

Tell your friends TRTA fights every day to protect the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) pension fund and TRS-Care and works to repeal the unfair federal Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP)!

Tell your friends TRTA worked with the Texas Legislature this year to help make the pension fund sound and get retirees a thirteenth check, putting $589 million directly into retirees’ pocketbooks!

Tell your friends we need their help to continue the fight and ensure the security of retirement benefits for them and their family members in the next generation who are also teachers!

The best ambassadors for TRTA are current members of our great organization. When you bring a friend to TRTA, the entire organization benefits! Watch this great video featuring TRTA First-Vice-President and State Membership Committee Chair Leroy DeHaven and learn why your membership is so important!
