TRTA supports maintaining the current defined benefit plan for all current and future TRS retirees, relying upon the tenants established in the 83rd legislative session to ensure the fund’s long-term solvency. To the extent possible, provide a cost-of-living increase or supplemental payment for current TRS retirees.

 

WELCOME TO THE ODESSA RETIRED SCHOOL PERSONNEL ASSOCIATION.

 

Texas Retired Teachers Association is the only organization working exclusively for Texas retired school personnel.
 

We are a local unit of TRTA with almost 380 members, and our goal is 400+ members.  Most of our members are retired from Ector County I. S. D.  

TRTA is the only organization working exclusively for Texas retired school personnel. Our local unit supports the state TRTA organization and the TRT Foundation charitable projects.

We are part of District 18 which includes seven local units in an area served by Region 18 Education Service Center.

The current newsletter from the TRTA Executive Director, Tim Lee, THE INSIDE LINE can be viewed from the TRTA website.   This is a good way to stay informed on issues important to TRTA members and retired school personnel.
