Eligible TRS members can now enroll in the new Supplemental Savings Plan (SSP). Help Bring More to your future retirement plans.
The SSP is an optional savings plan that allows you to dedicate a portion of every paycheck to a 457(b) deferred compensation plan administered by Voya Financial, a national leader in retirement security for millions of Americans.
The SSP is designed to supplement your existing TRS pension - not replace it. As an SSP member, when you retire and start receiving your monthly pension, you also will be able to draw on the money you've saved in your SSP account as you see fit.
The SSP is an option for active TRS members who are full-time or part-time contractual employees. Retired and inactive members are not eligible to participate in the SSP.
When you save money with the SSP, you also will choose how to invest those funds to help meet your future retirement needs. Voya will administer your SSP account while TRS will continue to oversee your pension.
Bring More to your future. Join the TRS SSP.
