Curious about Retirement?
Sign up for a Pre-Retirement Conference!

If you are a TMRS member thinking about your retirement options, now's the time to attend a TMRS Pre-Retirement Regional Conference. These free half-day events (from 8:00 a.m. until 11:45) are offered throughout the year in TMRS cities around the state. After you choose a conference, you can sign up online. The Pre-Retirement Conferences include presentations on TMRS benefits and Social Security. TMRS staff will also be on site to provide individual counseling. The conferences are especially useful for employees within five years of retirement, but all TMRS members and their spouses are welcome to attend.

Actuarial Information for City Finance Officers

The TMRS 2015 Actuarial Experience Study is available on the website. Note that the effect of the experience study on rates is ESTIMATED based on the December 31, 2014 actuarial valuation and does not reflect the actual 2017 contribution rates that will be provided to cities in June 2016. The change in contributions made due to the experience study is expected to be minor for most cities, but any city that sees a net rate increase greater than 0.5% due to assumption changes will be given the option of phasing in the increase at 0.5% per year.
