Our Purposes



  • Promote the preservation and the maintenance of the Teacher Retirement System of Texas Pension Trust Fund for the purposes as established in Article SVI, Section 67 of the Constitution of the State of Texas.
  • Encourage the Texas Legislature and the Teacher Retirement System of Texas Board of Trustees to ensure that the Pension Trust Fund is preserved to pay upon retirement, annuities and future annuity increases to the retired members of the Texas Retirement System of Texas.
  • Work with the Texas Legislature and the United States Congress to protect, promote and defend the interests of Texas Retirement System of Texas members.


"Don't miss out on the opportunity to join MARSP/TRTA. Due to TRTA’s strong advocacy efforts, the Texas Legislature appropriated approximately $5 billion in general revenue designated for COLAs and supplemental payments for a TRS benefit enhancement. Prop 9 passed on November 7th, so many of us can look forward to a much needed COLA which will be applied to eligible annuitants' payments beginning with their January 2024 payment due the last business day of the month. This would not have happened without the efforts of TRTA and its members advocating for a YES vote on Prop 9."
Paula Knight, First Vice-President-Membership MARSP

"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

Latest News

The official results of the November 7, 2023 election have now been canvassed and certified. The thirteen amendments that were approved by the people of Texas, including the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for eligible Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) annuitants, are now part of the Texas Constitution. The will of the voters has prevailed! Due to a fatal flaw in the lawsuits that were filed against these amendments, Governor Greg Abbott proceeded with certifying the election results on December 4, 2023. The Office of the Attorney General has notified the district court that the challengers’ lawsuits were fundamentally defective, and that they are moot now that the constitutional amendments have become law in Texas.
