The Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) is committed to achieving the highest levels of customer satisfaction by delivering services consistent with our mission and in a manner that actively encourages honesty, integrity, and ethical behavior among our employees. The
Compact with Texans describes TRS’ services, principles and process for filing complaints and requesting public information.
Customer communications, including both complaints and concerns, are received by a knowledgeable representative who will respond to you by telephone, letter or email in a timely manner. The Customer Relations unit coordinates, assists with and follows up on complaint resolution within the agency. We consider a complaint as a communication that involves a dissatisfaction with TRS’ actions or inaction in service. TRS strives to acknowledge all communications within five business days of receipt.
TRS employees are committed to providing professional, accurate, timely, and cost-effective delivery of services and benefits to our members and annuitants. We strive to be sensitive, caring, and fair to those we serve and to our co-workers. We take pride in the work we perform, and we seek to continuously improve.
