TRS (Teacher Retirement System) Plan Participants
If you are retiring from a UNT System component as a TRS member, the retirement process should begin about six (6) months prior to your planned departure date. If retirement is a few or many years in the future, contact the UNT Benefits to help you navigate the retirement process.
MyTRS allows employees to access their TRS personal retirement information online and calculate retirement benefits. You can use MyTRS to help plan for retirement and keep track of your account. MyTRS is available to both active and retired TRS members.

ORP (Optional Retirement Plan/403b) Participants
Optional Retirement Plan (ORP) participants should contact their plan vendor about 60 days prior to the expected departure or retirement date. Further discussions about ORP/403b plan contribution options are your responsibility. However, please contact a Benefits representative to be certain that retirement choices do not affect other State of Texas benefits.
