About Teacher Retirement System of Texas

TRS has two core responsibilities — to deliver retirement and related benefits that have been authorized by the Texas Legislature, and to manage the trust fund that finances member benefits. These responsibilities are carried out by a staff of approximately 599 employees located at the system’s offices in Austin, Texas. TRS is governed by a nine-member board of trustees appointed by the Governor of Texas with the approval of the Texas Senate. Trustees, who serve staggered six-year terms, include active and retired employees of public schools and higher education, complemented by appointees having relevant financial and investment expertise and experience.
