TRS 2015 Annual Membership Statements Now Available Online
 
Active members may now access their membership statements online via their TRS account. The statements provide valuable account information, such as an account balance, the lump-sum value of an account, as well as beneficiary and service credit information.
 
As an added service, we provide our members with estimated benefit projections that provide a glimpse into the future. When calculating these projections, we have to create assumptions about the future. Depending on the economy, sometimes our assumptions will lead to a higher projection and sometimes a lower projection. So, a member may notice that his or her projections have decreased a little over the past few years because he or she hasn’t received salary increases, or the salary increases were lower than the assumptions used in previous estimates.  Because of these fluctuations, always encourage a member, especially if he or she is close to retirement, to contact our office and request a benefit estimate. This allows TRS to provide an estimate that more accurately reflects that individual’s situation
 
Please remind your employees that the information and projections provided in these statements are only estimates and are subject to audit and adjustment. The information contained in this statement should not be regarded as a final benefit estimate.  If a member notices a discrepancy in the information provided, he or she should contact TRS. Also, if a member is considering retiring soon, please ask him or her to contact TRS for a more detailed benefit estimate.
 
Members Within 2 Years of Retirement: If a member is within 2 years of retirement (either because of his or her age or years of creditable service) we do not provide benefit projections. TRS recommends that all members nearing retirement call our office/go online to make an appointment to visit one-on-one with a retirement counselor. This meeting affords members the opportunity to bring a spouse/friend, receive benefit information specific to his or her situation, and ask questions.
