Who Qualifies as a TRS Member?

A person employed at least 210 hours during the fiscal year in a position reportable to TRS must become a member of TRS.

Membership is broken into two tiers:

  • Tier One: individual became a TRS member before July 1, 2013
  • Tier Two: individual became a TRS member on or after July 1, 2013

Each tier has different contribution rates, benefit formulas, and benefits. The difference in tiers, positions reportable to TRS, and much more is described in depth in the Active Member Handbook.
