Selection process two thresholds
Selection Process - Two Thresholds vs. TRS (old plan) Benefits

  • If at least 65% but less than 74.9% of the TDC (new plan) members elect to transfer to TRS (old plan), then the transferring employee will retain 75% of their service credit after moving to the old plan. 

    • Transferring employees will have the option to purchase the remaining 25% of their service credit by paying the actuarial value reserve (the short definition is the remaining 25% of service credit you will receive in future benefits calculated to today’s dollars).
