If you are engaged in an independent contracting relationship, or employed by a private entity doing business with a TRS covered employer in a position which would normally be held by a teacher as determined by the Board of Trustees, your compensation is limited to one half of the average annual compensation used to calculate your retirement benefit or your final salary at the time of your retirement, whichever is greater.
A copy of the independent contract must be submitted to TRS prior to the effective date of the contract.
For employment with any private entity (e.g. partnership, corporation, temp agency, etc.) as a teacher, documentation of your duties and responsibilities with the entity and the retiree’s relationship with the TRS covered employer must be submitted to TRS.
