TCDRS Employee Education

When it comes to retirement planning, knowledge is power. TCDRS can help you help your employees gain a better understanding of how their benefits are earned, what you provide and what their options are at retirement.

You can schedule a visit from our Member Services Representatives to provide free benefit education to your employees with a Retirement Seminar and Personal Benefit Counseling.

Retirement seminars

This is a general session to give your employees an overview of their TCDRS benefits under your specific plan.

Personal Benefit Counseling

Your employees can sign up for a free, 30-minute, one-on-one session with a TCDRS Member Services Representative. During these sessions, employees can:

  • Review their individual benefit status 
  • Run different retirement scenarios with customized benefit estimates 
  • Learn what they should consider when selecting a benefit payment option 
  • Review additional benefits such as Survivor Benefit and Group Term Life 

Contact your Employer Services Representative to schedule a visit.

ONLINE Counseling

TCDRS offers online one-on-one counseling sessions to all members who want to learn more about their retirement benefits.

When members meet online during their free session with a TCDRS representative, they will:

  • Learn about their benefits 
  • Receive personalized estimates 
  • Review benefit payment options 

It’s like having a face-to-face counseling session with a TCDRS representative from the privacy of their home or office. All they need is a computer or mobile device, and an internet connection. No Webcam required!

Members can sign up for their free online counseling session on our scheduling page. For more information, visit
