TRS is one of the largest pension systems in the United States. We provide New York City educators with retirement,
disability, and death benefit services. In addition to our basic Qualified Pension Plan, we administer one of the largest
unified Section 403(b) Tax-Deferred Annuity Programs in the country.
TRS membership is available to educators who work for the New York City Department of Education, the City University of New York, or participating New York City Charter Schools. Overall, our programs serve nearly 200,000 in-service members, retirees, and beneficiaries.
