At its May 2016 meeting, the TMRS Board of Trustees approved two revised charters for the Advisory Committee, one effective immediately and one effective January 1, 2018. The immediately effective charter renames the Committee as the Advisory Committee on Benefit Design and changes some of the administrative provisions of the Committee. The charter effective January 2018 modifies the size and composition of the Committee and makes further administrative changes.

Charter for the Advisory Committee effective May 19, 2016

Charter for the Advisory Committee effective January 1, 2018

More Information

September 2016 Update

The TMRS Board appointed Trustees Bill Philibert and Roy Rodriguez as Chair and Vice-Chair, respectively, of the Advisory Committee on Benefit Design. The Committee was assigned to study TMRS’ cost of living adjustment (COLA) structure and return-to-work provisions and to identify the advantages and disadvantages of options for each study topic to determine if any statutory changes should be proposed.

The Committee held two meetings this summer, the first on June 23, 2016 and the second on August 18, 2016. TMRS staff and the System’s governance and actuarial consultants provided the Committee with in-depth background and trend information on these two study items (see links at left). The Committee developed a list of advantages and disadvantages of certain options compared to current law and presented the list to the Board at their September meeting as a discussion item (see presentation here). The Board requested that staff prepare and present additional information for consideration at the next Board meeting in October.
