It’s in the mail! TRS retirees, about 400,000 in Texas and across the nation, will be receiving the promised 13th check within the next couple of weeks.

During the 86th Legislative Session that ended in June, thanks to the effort of TRTA staff and members working with grassroots advocacy, lawmakers passed legislation that dedicated $589 million to help public education retirees, most of whom are classroom teachers, but also include librarians, administrators, staff, cafeteria and custodial retirees.

TRS members should have received notification advising them that the check will be in an amount equal to their August 2019 gross annuity payment, or $2,000, whichever is less. The payment will be delivered around mid-September.
