TRS Reporting Change
Effective with the September 1, 2015 paycheck, the timing of reporting to TRS has changed. Per revised TRS Rule 25.28, salaries and deposits are now reported based on check date, rather than pay period. As a result, only 11 months of salaries are included in the 2014-2015 totals. Employees will notice this change on their TRS Statement that was recently mailed to them. If you are approaching retirement, TRS may be willing to work with you to adjust your salaries to reflect a full 12 months. Please contact TRS directly at 1-800-223-8778 or 512-542-6400 to begin this process. You may also find additional information in the “Guide to Reading Your 2015 TRS Annual Statement” on the TRS website.
