Throughout the 2019 Legislative Session, we have posted the latest information regarding legislation that impacts retired educators. With the end of the Session on May 26th, we can report that all of the emails, phone calls, visits, and letters have paid off! With the passage of Senate Bill 500 (the supplemental budget) and Senate Bill 12 (the Retired Teachers' Security Act), we can rejoice that the TRS Pension fund will be actuarially sound. Those retirees who retired by December 31, 2018, received a one time 13th check not to exceed $2000. With the actuarial soundness of the pension fund, we can look forward to cost of living adjustments in the near future.



We had a total Volunteer Hours for 2018 of 61,027 hours. That equates to $1,506,756.63 using the rate of $24.69 per hour. Way to go YRSEA!!!!  

We are starting the next year's tallies for our volunteer hours. Check out some Benefits of Volunteering.
