13. Where can I get TRS information and forms (for retirement or to withdraw)?

Posted by:

For TRS forms and information, you must contact TRS directly at 1-800-223-8778 or at https://www.trs.texas.gov/Pages/retirees_beneficiaries.aspx.

TRS has an update about changes to your TRS-Care benefits that take effect Jan. 1, 2018.

As a self-insured health benefits program, TRS-Care uses contributions from the state, public schools, employees and retirees to provide health care for participants. Over the past decade, health care costs have been skyrocketing, rising almost 10 percent each year. Without any changes to the program, TRS-Care was in danger of becoming too expensive to continue.

 
In order to sustain TRS-Care for current and future retirees, the 85th Texas Legislature recently passed legislation that has changed the program’s benefits structure and provided additional funding to further support the program. On June 2, the TRS Board of Trustees approved new plan designs and premiums that go into effect Jan. 1, 2018.
