IF YOU SELECTED PLAN OPTION 2 OR 3, YOU MUST PROVE THE DATE OF BIRTH OF JOINT ANNUITANT AND YOUR AGE.
It is necessary that your correct age be established before you are eligible for retirement.
When do I need to provide proof of birth information?
We suggest you submit the necessary proof of your birth with your pre-retirement information verification form or as soon as possible after you start the retirement process. TRS must have this proof in order to avoid a possible delay in your retirement.
What type of proof of birth is required?
A copy of a birth certificate is the best proof, but since one is not always available, TRS will accept any of the following documents:
- Birth Certificate
- Valid state or federal government issued photo identification
Please send copies of original documents.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to identify any documentation you mail by writing your client identification number or Social Security number on it.
It is YOUR responsibility to notify TRS of the date you want to retire. You should do so in writing, at least three months before the date you wish to receive your first retirement check. This will allow sufficient time for you and TRS to audit your records and correct any irregularities.
