State Retirement Matching Contributions and Planning

As a TDLR employee, you will begin contributing 9.5% of your salary to a State of Texas retirement account as soon as you start working. The state matches the employee contribution and invests 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.
