The Role of the Employer

Employers provide a vital link between members and TRS. As an employer, you forward member and employer contributions; report member earnings and service credit information; and disseminate information about TRS to more than 115,000 members. Information you provide determines members’ current service credit and retirement contributions and, thus, their future retirement benefits.

Because benefits from TRS are based on service credit and contributions that you report, accuracy in reporting and payment is vital. TRS’s effectiveness in benefit administration rests largely on the reports you provide. Each employer should ensure that agency information (agency contacts, address and phone number) is up to date at all times. This will assure that the district receives important notices from TRS.
