As a TCDRS member, you'll reach important milestones on the road to retirement. One of these milestones is called vesting, and it’s an important step on the way to retirement eligibility.
Vesting with TCDRS means you have enough service time to receive a lifetime monthly benefit when you become eligible and choose to retire.
The amount needed for vesting is determined by your employer and could be either 5, 8 or 10 years.
TCDRS will contact you when you reach this important milestone or you can sign in and see for yourself where you are on the road to retirement.
