Welcome to Tri-County Retired Teachers Association

Tri-County RTA serves Duval, Jim Wells and Western Nueces Counties.

       Our 2015-16 membership drive is in full gear, making sure that all members get the best of their membershipState Dues are $35  and Local Dues are $7 and we are encouraging all TRS Annuitants to join us as TRTA is the Voice for All Education Retirees! Call Elva Garcia at 361-227-1136 or Diana Reyna at 361-389-2828 to join or pay your dues.

We want to thank our State Legislators for their support in funding TRS-Care which had been facing an approximate 768 million dollar short fall!  With the help of our legislature, TRS Care did not see changes, however, there will be studies conducted through out the state to study our TRS Care and its financing in the next biennium.

Primaries and the general elections are around the corner so please get informed as to who is running and their standing on issues that affect TRS annuitants. Please vote, elections have consequences!


Meetings are held at the First Methodist Church, 111N Adams, Alice, TX and we proudly encourage TRS annuitants and friends to join us and be part of the Voice that fights to protect our annuity and our TRS Care as well as provide our members with benefits such as an outstanding dental plan and many other benefits!
