Welcome to the TRTA website. We are glad you're here!


As public school education employees in Texas, our members served the children of the state, often for decades. Their dedication carries over into their lives as retirees, where they strive to make an impact in everything they do!

Whether it’s volunteering in local schools and communities, advocating for improved benefits for themselves and their fellow retirees, or enjoying the friendships they’ve made through a TRTA local chapter, our members are active and always giving back.

Our website includes up-to-date information on legislation that impacts your livelihood at both the state and federal level, information about how to contact your legislators, helpful articles about your health and safety, as well as useful tips to enhance your lifestyle in retirement.

You can join the largest association of retired educators in the nation for just $35 per year, or $2.92 per month. Learn more about membership in TRTA here.
