Exciting News! If you retired on or before December 31, 2020, and receive an annuity from TRS, your 13th check will be mailed or deposited to your bank on January 14, 2022. Thank you TRTA members who worked so hard for this check. Your calls, letters and visits to legislators put our message out in a way that could not be ignored. Many current legislators have already committed to working for a COLA in the next session. So sign up your friends and get ready to work for improved benefits for retired teachers.
