Service Time & the Proportionate Retirement Program

The Proportionate Retirement Program allows employees with service time in eligible Texas retirement systems to use that time for vesting and retirement eligibility with TCDRS.

Those Texas public retirement systems are:

  • Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS)

  • Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS)

  • Texas Municipal Retirement System (TMRS)

  • Judicial Retirement System of Texas (JRS)

  • City of Austin Employees’ Retirement System (COAERS)

Employees with proportionate service need to call TCDRS if their account does not show the service time. We will then confirm the service time with the other system, update our records and send the employee a confirmation of service update.
