Help for Retirees

TMRS forms require a signature and date. Download the form you need, complete it, and sign it. Mail or fax (not both) the form to TMRS. Fax: 512.476.5576. Do not email forms. If you fill the form out by hand, please use black ink, no highlighter.

NOTE: If you are sending a copy or the image of a document (such as a driver’s license) via fax, please use the clearest image possible so the fax we receive will be legible.

Don’t Double Up!
If you fax a form, do not mail a separate copy. We only need one copy of each form, either faxed or mailed.

Announcements for Retirees

RetirementWise Spring Issue Now Available

The Spring 2018 issue of RetirementWise, TMRS’ magazine for retirees, has been mailed to you (if you haven't requested to receive it only electronically on MyTMRS) and is now available on our website. If you are a registered user of MyTMRS, you should have received an automatic notification via email of the new issue last week.

What to Do if You Haven’t Received Your TMRS Tax Documents

The 1099-Rs and HELPS statements (if applicable) were posted to MyTMRS and mailed in January to all annuitants. If you need a copy, you can download and save the document from your MyTMRS account. Once you log in, click the Documents tab, and then select 2017 1099-R (or HLPS). If you need a copy faxed or mailed (not emailed), please call our office at 800-924-8677 so we can assist you.

2018 Retirement Account Statements

The 2018 Retirement Account Statements were mailed February 8. These statements show your retirement option, retirement date, beneficiary information, and monthly TMRS retirement benefit payment (including your withholding amount) in effect for 2018. Statements are also posted online – you may view your statement by logging on to MyTMRS.

Update on 2018 Tax Tables

The new tax tables for 2018 have been applied to retirement accounts. This means your first annuity payment, on January 31, 2018, will reflect the new withholding amount. To see how the new rate may affect your retirement payment or to update your withholding instructions, log in to your account on MyTMRS.
