No Prior Membership In Any DRS Retirement Plan - TRS

Employee Hired Into a TRS Position

The employee has the option to become a member of TRS Plan 2 or Plan 3.

A new member has 90 calendar days to make an irrevocable Plan Choice, or they are defaulted by the employer into Plan 3, rate option A, investment program SELF.

An employee employed in a TRS eligible position should initially be reported in TRS Plan 2, unless the employer receives the Member Information Form (MIF) from an employee choosing Plan 3 before the first payroll cutoff. If reporting for the first time, be sure to include the begin date, even if it is the same as the Plan Choice Date.
