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 approximately 195,000 in-service members, retirees, and beneficiaries.

Coffee, Tea, or TDA?

TDA_iconA latte or two may help you through the workday. But the money you're spending won't help you tomorrow.

What if you took some of that money and invested in TRS' Tax-Deferred Annuity (TDA) Program? You'd start building a more secure future, and you'd owe less in taxes too.

Maybe it's time to wake up and smell the coffee.

Enroll online before May 14, and your contributions should begin before summertime.
