Tri-County Retired Teachers Association

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

       Our 2017-18 membership drive is in full gear, making sure that all members get the best of their membership!

 Membership year is July 1- June 30.

State 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 passing HB 21 which will provide $212 millions towards TRS-Care, the state-run health insurance program.  For specific information on how this will impact you, go to www.trta.org or sign up for The Inside Line to get up to date details.


The fight for funding TRS Care will only continue on to the next legislatures so as we prepare for the upcoming primaries please get informed as to who is running and their standing on issues that affect TRS annuitants. 

Please vote, elections have consequences!
