How do I sign up for payroll deduction?

  • TEPSA does NOT initiate payroll deduction on your behalf.
  • Contact your payroll office and ask about their procedures. Every school district is different.
  • Submit one copy of the membership application to TEPSA and another copy to your school district payroll office, as well as any other forms required by your school district.
  • Monitor your paycheck to ensure your TEPSA deduction begins within two pay cycles and correct amount is being deducted in order for your membership to be paid in full by May 31.


Is there a payroll deduction deadline?

2024-2025 Membership: Deadline to register using payroll deduction is October 31, 2024


How do I figure out how much should be deducted for membership dues?

Divide the dues amount by the number of pay periods to determine your deduction. Dues must be paid in full by May 31. Any existing balances from the previous membership year must be paid in full before you can renew.


My school district doesn’t offer a payroll deduction.

TEC §22.001 requires school districts to provide payroll deduction for professional organization dues to all employees who request it.
