Information on the January rate change window is available to Teachers’ Retirement System (TRS) Plan 3 members. This rate flexibility option does not apply to members of PERS or SERS.

TRS Plan 3 members may change their contribution rate by submitting the TRS Plan 3 Contribution Rate Change Form to their employer by January 31, 2009.

Please report the new rate option on either the January or February transmittal report based on when you received the form. After completing the last section, mail the original signed form to DRS.

This option is being offered according to provisions granted to TRS Plan 3 by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The contribution rate option members select should be considered binding and can only be changed when they change employers or during rate change windows as permitted by the IRS.

Should you have questions, please reply to this message or call Employer Support Services at 360-664-7200, option 2, or 1-800-547-6657, option 6, option 2.
