The Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) Board of Trustees met this week in Austin to discuss several issues, including the actuarial valuation of the pension fund.
There is a lot of good news about the TRS pension fund to share with our members. TRS reported the pension fund is at a healthy $130 billion. The rate of return on investments for the year was 16.8 percent, net of expenses. The return was large enough to eliminate deferred losses and is now in a position of deferred investment gains.
