What Retirees Can Do Online

Registering online at TCDRS.org makes it easy to manage your information and payments anytime and anywhere.

After you retire, we know the last thing you want to be doing is spending time on the phone coordinating how to receive your TCDRS benefit payments during extended vacations or reciting new banking information and mailing addresses if you decide to move permanently.

That’s why we’ve made it easy for retirees to update all this information and more in their online accounts at TCDRS.org.

A TCDRS.org account provides all the tools and resources you need for a smooth, uninterrupted retirement. Here is a full list of features you can take advantage of by registering online at TCDRS.org:
