TRS is a retirement system for public school employees in the state of Texas.  Employees that are regularly scheduled to work at least 20 hours per week will make contributions into TRS instead of contributing to Social Security.  Currently your contributions are set at 7.7% of earnings. In addition to the contributions you make as an employee, the state of Texas also contributes to your account.  You are always vested in your contributions and will vest in the state contributions following five years of eligible service.
