Benefit for Adult Child with Disability

An additional monthly benefit of $200 is available if you have an adult child with a disability whose mental or physical condition is sufficient to cause dependency on you. Eligibility for this payment shall continue for the lifetime of the child, until the time the mental or physical condition creating the dependency no longer exists, or until the child marries.

Benefits under this program shall also be available to adopted children. The Board of Trustees shall be the sole judge of eligibility or dependency, and proper TRS documentation must be completed at the time of retirement to apply for these benefits.
