Texas Municipal Retirement System (TMRS)

TMRS is a required retirement plan for all full-time employees. The following is a high-level overview of the plan:

  • TMRS contributions are seven percent of your pay.
  • The City will match your contributions two to one during retirement.
  • With TMRS retirement options, you are guaranteed a retirement check for the rest of your life.
  • No income taxes are withheld until you retire or terminate and request a refund.
  • You are vested after five years, which means you may leave your deposits with TMRS to continue to earn interest until you are ready to retire, even if you leave the City. You are eligible to
    retire if you have five years of service and are age 60 or over. However, if you have 20 years of service, you are eligible to retire at any age.

You can track your TMRS balance, view or change beneficiaries, update your address or phone number and more on the TMRS Website
