TRS website calculators moving to MyTRS

Thanks to the growing popularity of MyTRS calculators, TRS will discontinue featuring most of the generic calculators on the public-facing portion of its website, effective Sept. 1, 2014.

MyTRS calculators provide members and retirees with greater accuracy than generic calculators. This is because they pull account-specific information directly from TRS member data and, therefore, provide the most reliable and useful information available for members.

The TRS website currently features the following calculators:

  • Retirement Estimate Calculator
  • Unreported/Substitute Service Calculator
  • State Sick/Personal Leave Calculator
  • Withholding Calculator

As of Sept. 1, 2014, the retirement, unreported and sick leave calculators will be available to members and retirees solely through the MyTRS section of the website. A withholding calculator will also be available inside MyTRS. However, we will maintain a withholding calculator outside of MyTRS as well that will not require a MyTRS login and so will not pull any account-specific information. Users will continue to be able to free-flow entries as they do now.

Beginning Sept. 1, 2014, simply click on the “MyTRS LOGIN” button in the upper right-hand corner of the website home page, http://www.trs.state.tx.us, to access these calculators through MyTRS. If you have yet to register for MyTRS, you can do so directly from that page.
