In late August 2017, the Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS) will launch its redesigned website and new domain name. The new domain name will mean a new website address and new email addresses for ERS employees and other contacts at the agency.
The domain name will change to ers.texas.gov from ers.state.tx.us.
Why the change?
ERS is changing its domain name to be consistent with other State of Texas agencies. Texas.gov has been chosen as the primary outward-facing domain name for all state agencies.
ERS is changing the website to make it easier to navigate and find information. ERS evaluates and redesigns the website every few years to keep it fresh and stay current with best practices on the internet.
What if I forget the new website or email address?
Don’t worry if you forget, all emails sent to an old address will be automatically forwarded to the new ERS address. The same is true if you type in the old website address, you will be automatically redirected to the new website.
ERS redesigned the website with users in mind. ERS conducted user testing among our members and staff to understand how and why people use our website. ERS used this information to create a streamlined website that is more user-friendly. ERS reorganized some information while keeping some of the great features you’re already familiar with.
Look for more information, including tips for using the new website, in August.
