Retired school personnel invited to meeting to learn about TRS Care

Retired teachers and school personnel, both members and nonmembers, are invited to attend a meeting of the Trinity County Retired Teachers Association on Tuesday, September 12, at Romo's Restaurant in Trinity.

The meeting will begin at 12:30; arrive by 12:00 if you would like to order lunch and share in a time of fellowship. Romo's is located on Hwy. 19 north of Trinity, about 2 miles from the traffic light on the right side of Hwy. 19/ Hwy. 94.

All TRS annuitants are urged to attend and any annuitant's spouse who is on TRS Care is also encouraged to be there because of possible large premium increases.
Information is vital to making good decisions and this is an excellent opportunity to learn and ask questions about TRS Care's new look.

The speaker for this meeting will be Dr. James Warner, District 6 Legislative Chairman. He is a well informed and highly motivated speaker. Dr. Warner has served school districts as a teacher, coach, activities director, assistant superintendent, superintendent and on the board of education. His career includes service in Baytown, Beaumont, Port Neches and Jasper. He plans to review what was accomplished in both regular and special sessions of the legislature, what the retired teacher's health plan looks like now and what TRTA's priorities will be going forward to the 86th session in 2019.

This will be valuable information for retired school personnel.

Eric Hunt, Senior District Manager for Northeast Houston Division of Association Member Benefits Advisors will also be in attendance to share possible alternative medical coverage. He has done a great deal of research on the health care system. No one is being advised to change coverage; that decision is for the TRS annuitant to make for themselves. Retirees will be forced to make decisions soon and this is an opportunity to learn what is available to TRTA members.

Texas Retired Teachers Association desires to be the voice of all retired school personnel. Higher membership numbers mean a louder voice in Austin. If a retired teacher or any retired school employee would like to add their voice by becoming a member of TRTA and the Trinity County Unit, you will have an opportunity at this meeting.
