Providing Retirement for More Than 320,000 Texans
TCDRS is one of the best-funded retirement systems in the nation. Although we provide retirement benefits or “pensions” to hard-working Texans, our unique features distinguish us from traditional pension plans and keep us financially strong.
Members save for their own retirement over the length of their careers. The TCDRS benefit is based on the total final savings balance and employer matching.
Our employers pay 100% of their required contribution rate each year. This ensures that funds are there when needed.
Flexibility & Local Control
TCDRS is not a one-size-fits-all system. TCDRS employers can choose benefit levels to meet their needs and budgets.
