Setting Up New Employees

Whether as a job candidate or a new employee, TCDRS can be a powerful recruiting and retention tool to help your organization stand out.

Members can rely on:

  • Automatic savings – Employees save for their own retirement over the course of their career and earn 7% annual compound interest.

  • Employer matching – At retirement, employees’ savings are matched dollar for dollar, or more depending on your plan.

  • Lifetime benefit – Retirees receive a lifetime benefit from your TCDRS plan. Depending on the payment option chosen, the retiree can also provide a lifetime benefit to their beneficiary.

Onboarding New Employees

Starting a new job can be an exciting and overwhelming time for an employee. We’re here to help your new employees get a jump start on their retirement savings and learn more about their benefit with ease.

As soon as you enroll your new employee, they can register for TCDRS account access. Within two weeks of enrollment, TCDRS will send a welcome mailer that highlights the retirement benefits you provide, include the employee’s account number, and encourage online registration and beneficiary designation. For security purposes, they will need their account number to register online.

We also have a dedicated web page for new hires. Here they can access the new member video – “An Introduction to Your Member Benefits” – to get a high-level overview of their benefits. 

If you prefer to provide a handout (physical or electronic) to your new hires, we can provide you with a customized onboarding brochure for your new employees.

Encourage your new employees to register for online account access at Once online, new employees can designate a beneficiary, estimate their future benefit and watch their retirement savings grow. We have flyers and posters employers can use to encourage online registration.
