Members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA), along with hundreds of thousands of Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) retirees, will be receiving a supplemental payment before the end of January 2022.

Click here to complete the survey.

Members, let us know how you plan to spend the extra funds. This information is vital in letting our legislators know the important priorities of retirees who are living on fixed incomes!

TRTA wants everyone to know more about the role we play as an advocacy organization in helping secure victories like this supplemental payment. The simple fact is that we need more people to know who we are, what we do, and why we do this. Many of your fellow retirees do not know the inside story of how TRTA involvement helps protect and improve their retirement.

Don’t forget to watch TRTA Executive Director Tim Lee this Friday, January 7 at 3:00 p.m., live on Facebook and YouTube as he discusses the forthcoming supplemental payments that TRTA won for TRS retirees during the special legislative session.

You won’t want to miss this very special live video event! You may view this live event on TRTA’s Facebook page or YouTube channel! You do not need to have an account with either service to view the video. The video will also be archived on these pages even if you are unable to attend the live event.

Please let your fellow TRS retirees know about this special presentation and please complete the survey (feel free to share with those who are not yet members of TRTA)!

We look forward to seeing as many of our members and TRS retirees as possible in the chat box on January 7!

TRTA Appreciation Challenge

TRTA is challenging our entire membership to post a message on their Facebook, Twitter, or other social media account in January 2022. Use the video to express your appreciation for TRTA! Let’s make sure that all TRS retirees are listening and know we are here to help them. If you are not on social media, please share your VOICE bulletin with someone who is not a member. You may also phone a friend and ask if they received their supplemental payment.

Below are examples of what your message could look like on your social media! Be sure to include your name, number of years you have been a member of TRTA, and the name of your local unit (if you belong to one).

Thank You!
