How we’re different
We are savings based: Members save for their own retirement over the length of their careers. The TCDRS benefit is based on the total final savings balance and employer matching.
We are responsibly funded:Our employers pay 100% of their required contribution rate each year. This ensures that funds are there when needed.
We offer flexibility and local control: TCDRS is not a one-size-fits-all system. TCDRS employers can choose benefit levels to meet their needs and budgets.
