The University of Texas-University Charter School is a participating TRS employer. TRS is a defined benefit retirement plan governed by Internal Revenue Code Section 401(a). All eligible employees are automatically enrolled in TRS on their first day of employment. Employee and employer contributions go into a large trust fund that’s managed by knowledgeable professionals. Retirement benefits are based on legislatively determined formulas. You are vested after attaining five years of service credit with a right to a retirement benefit. There are also disability, death and survivor benefits available to TRS members.
Employees earn state service credit while working for a State of Texas agency or a public institution of higher education in the state of Texas. State service affects an employee’s annual leave (vacation) accruals and eligibility for longevity pay. The university does not automatically receive information about state service history, so it’s very important for prospective employees to make sure their state service record is complete and correct.
