Making the decision to retire is a big decision to make. Your reason for retiring and what you will do next are two things to think about as you make the decision. Do you have a plan on how to meet your living expenses?  The average retiree will receive about 69% of their original salary as part of their TRS Benefits. Saving in other ways besides your TRS pension is a very valuable decision to make early on in your career. Check your TRS statement each year to make sure all is being reported correctly. You only have 5 years to correct a mistake in reporting by your district.

Employment After Retirement      
If you will be a normal-age retiree, the information in this section is for you. You must wait one full calendar month before returning to employment with an employer covered by TRS, but you may negotiate before you retire for substitute, one-half time, or less employment that will begin after the one full, calendar-month break in service. You cannot, however, negotiate for full-time employment before you retire and before you observe the required one full, calendar-month break in service after you retire, unless the full-time employment begins after a full, consecutive-calendar-month break in service.
