When are benefits Paid


If your properly completed application is received by TRS at least 30 days prior to your effective date of retirement, and all your allowable service has been established, you should receive your first benefit payment during your first month of retirement.

All payments will be automatically sent to your financial institution via the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) process, and will be available to you on the first business day for which the payment is being made. For example, your February monthly payment is available to you on the first business day of February.
