" WHAT TRTA MEANS TO ME: I appreciate the work TRTA is dedicating to public education retirees by fighting for a COLA for Texas Education Retirees. TRTA recognizes the need for a raise for dedicated employees who worked tirelessly for many years in Texas schools. TRTA diligently works with the Texas Senate Finance Committee fighting for us. That is encouraging and it gives us hope that we can better survive the rapid inflation our country is experiencing and continue to support out local economy as well." Lois Hillary, MARSP Legislative Representative

"TRTA is the ONLY voice for retired educators! MARSP is our local chapter, devoted to informing members of impending legislation which will directly impact their lives. MARSP provides current information on a variety of topics, offers fellowship and fun every month at Thursday luncheons, facilitates volunteer opportunities, and provides access to exclusive benefits on discount terms. By joining MARSP, you add your voice to the other 94,000 TRTA members and increase the strength of those voices and enhance our ability to protect our retirement fund and to provide increases in our annuities." Maridell Fryar, Past-President of TRTA & MARSP
