For many TRS participants, e-mail has become the number one way to receive information. To respond to this preference, TRS has created MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions, an email subscription service, so that members may receive TRS publications and announcements in a quick and convenient way. By enrolling in MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions, you not only will receive TRS-related news faster, but you also will help reduce printing and mailing costs for TRS.
To enroll in MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions, you will need to login to MyTRS. If you are already registered to use MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions, simply log in, select MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions and follow the instructions. If you are not yet a MyTRS registered user, simply register and then select MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions when you are in MyTRS.
As part of your registration for MyTRS, you provide TRS your email address. When you enroll in MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions, TRS uses the email address you provided to send you communications about your TRS benefits and related news. Once you have enrolled in MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions, you should receive an e-mail message from TRS within a short time asking you to “activate” the address by clicking a link within the message and following the directions on the screen that appears. That’s it!
This is the TRS newsletter for active members and TRS retirees. Generally published three times per year, TRS News provides updates on TRS business, including notification of changes to laws and rules affecting your benefits. If you sign up to receive notification of the newsletter by e-mail, you will no longer receive TRS News issues by postal service mail. [-MENU-]
TRS Benefits Handbook
Updated and published every other year, The TRS Benefits Handbook is a summary of the retirement plan for TRS members. It provides an overview of the benefits you may be eligible for through your participation in TRS. If you sign up to receive notification of the handbook by e-mail, you will no longer receive the TRS Benefits Handbook by postal service mail. [-MENU-]
If you subscribe to TRS announcements, you will receive general updates from TRS by e-mail. For example, TRS may notify subscribers of significant developments relating to TRS benefits before the next scheduled publication date for TRS News. TRS announcements generally are made on the "What’s New" section of the TRS website. Because these announcements are not sent to members and annuitants by postal service mail before publication of the TRS News or the TRS Benefits Handbook, subscribing to announcements in MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions is especially helpful in staying informed of changes that may affect your benefits.[-MENU-]
If you select this option, you will receive an e-mail message containing notice of newly passed TRS-related legislation after the end of each legislative session. These updates are not sent by postal service mail, but may be included in the "What’s New" section of the TRS website or the next publication of TRS News. [-MENU-]
Notice of Webcasts and Meetings
If you select this option, you will receive an e-mail notification when TRS hosts a webcast or conducts a meeting regarding a significant issue affecting members and annuitants. This information is not sent by postal service mail, but may be included in the "What’s New" section of the TRS website or the next publication of TRS News. [-MENU-]
Notice of Your TRS Annual Statement
If you are an active member, you may select this option to receive e-mail notice that your TRS annual statement is available online. Annual statements are distributed by TRS every fall. When you select this option, you will no longer receive your annual statement by postal mail. [-MENU-]
Notice of Your 1099-R Tax Form
If you are a annuitant receiving a monthly benefit from TRS, you may select this option to receive e-mail notice that your 1099-R tax form is available online. TRS distributes 1099-R forms to benefit recipients each January. When you select this option, you will no longer receive your 1099-R by postal mail. [-MENU-]
Once your MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions enrollment is completed, you will begin receiving e-mail notice of the TRS publications and other items you’ve selected. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from e-mail notice and instead resume postal service delivery of items that TRS makes available that way, you may do so. We encourage you to look over our frequently asked questions (FAQs) to learn more about how MyTRS E-mail Subscriptions works.
