The 88th Texas Legislature appropriated revenue designated for a TRS retiree cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), but in order for the COLA to take effect, Texas voters will need to vote FOR a constitutional amendment authorizing the COLA in the upcoming election, Tuesday, November 7, 2023.

Visit the Texas Retired Teachers Association for resources and answers to FAQs including who is eligible for the COLA, why the COLA requires constitutional authorization, and more.

Please get informed, encourage others to help pass the cost-of-living adjustment for retired school employees, and most importantly, VOTE!
