Prior to the June 26th U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding same-sex marriages, TMRS had been in compliance with applicable Internal Revenue Service requirements regarding same-sex spouses, and the TMRS Act allowed a member to name any person, spouse or non-spouse, as a beneficiary.
Following the decision, TMRS has updated our internal processes to recognize the spousal relationship of TMRS members in same-sex marriages. TMRS members should contact TMRS Member Services at 800-924-8677 if they need assistance in completing a beneficiary designation.
