Member Testimonials

Here are just a few things our Members are saying about TMRS:


I think it is one of the best managed and strongest retirement systems in the country. From day one of my retirement I have not had a problem. My money is always in the bank on the last working day of the month. I had one question about the system shortly after I retired. I called your office and they quickly answered my question. Thanks for doing a great job.

I am a retired female firefighter from the City of Farmers Branch... Over the last decade of my career I saw many fire departments and Cities struggle that were not part of the TMRS... I’m not sure what it entails to keep TMRS on top but apparently you do and I cannot thank you enough!

Good morning AND Happy New Year! Starting employment with the City of Huntsville in (September), 2003 at the ripe old age of 47 - not quite 20 years ago, I never realized how much having a retirement account would impact my life and well-being until almost 20 years later...

TMRS has been a part of my life for about 45 years. I started with the City of Beaumont contributing to TMRS when I was about 29 years old. I made contributions until I retired in 2010. Since then I have received payments every month... At times, it was difficult to see my payments going into TMRS each paycheck, but since retirement, I have been thankful for TMRS retirement checks.

S.D.

A check faithfully and on time for the rest of my life. Not too shabby.

Just would like to thank TMRS, would not know what I would have done without them. It has really been a blessing, thanks so very much.

W.R.

You just can't beat a defined benefit pension!

J.E.

TMRS is perhaps the best retirement system in the United States. How lucky we are.

Due to TMRS and my career, I enjoy a financially stable retirement, providing me with financial independence. I see people my age (77) who still have to work to supplement their meager Social Security benefits. That can be a very difficult, if not impossible task.

Thank you, TMRS, for a happy, secure retirement.

K.G.

Happy Birthday TMRS, and here's to many, many more!

D.A.

After 28 years of hard labor in Texas, TMRS was the rainbow at the end… Retired in 2011 and through thick and thin, TMRS has been there.

I could not feel like I am in better hands. Thanks to TMRS now and forever.
