State Retirement Matching Contributions and Planning

The State of Texas Retirement program is a defined benefit retirement plan for eligible employees of State of Texas agencies, with mandatory participation. The State and TDLR contribute to the retirement plan and invest the money to provide eligible retirees a payment (or annuity) for the rest of their life. Voluntary personal savings opportunities through 401(k)/457 Program are available as well to supplement your retirement.
