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 200,000 in-service members, retirees, and beneficiaries.
One Step to Take Before the School Year
Before the back-to-school whirl starts, consider one simple step for your financial future: Enroll in TRS' Tax-Deferred Annuity (TDA) Program.
With TDA, you can reduce your current tax burden and build your nest egg by investing in TRS' Passport Funds. Log in with your Username and Password, and you can sign up in minutes.
If you're one of the 76,000 members already contributing, consider increasing your TDA contribution rate this school year. Rate changes and new enrollments don't take effect for at least 30 days, so now is the time to make changes for the coming school year.
When the school year starts, we know you'll be focused on your students. While it's still summer, focus on yourself and your future with TRS' TDA Program!
