TRS Online Account Information
Active TRS members may now access their membership statements online via their TRS account. The statements provide valuable account information, such as an account balance, the lump-sum value of an account, estimated benefit projections, as well as beneficiary and service credit information. These statements are a snapshot of account information as of the completion of the previous fiscal year.
As an added service, members are provided with estimated benefit projections that show a glimpse into the future. When calculating these projections, TRS has to create assumptions about the future. Depending on the economy, sometimes the assumptions will lead to a higher projection and sometimes a lower projection. So, employees may notice that their projections have decreased a little over the past few years because they haven't received salary increases, or the salary increases were lower than the assumptions used in previous estimates. Because of these fluctuations, TRS encourages all members, especially those close to retirement, to contact our office and request a benefit estimate. This allows TRS to provide an estimate that more accurately reflects your situation.
Please remember that the information and projections provided in these statements are only estimates and are subject to audit and adjustment. The information contained in this statement should not be regarded as a final benefit estimate. If a member notices a discrepancy in the information provided, he or she should contact TRS. Also, if a member is considering retiring soon, contact TRS for a more detailed benefit estimate.
Members Within 2 Years of Retirement: Benefits projections are not provided for members within 2 years of retirement (either because of his or her age or years of creditable service). TRS recommends that all members nearing retirement call their office/go online to make an appointment to visit one-on-one with a retirement counselor. This meeting affords members the opportunity to bring a spouse/friend, receive benefit information specific to his or her situation, and ask questions.
