Proposed TRS Pension Reform

Need more information about the TRS pension reform proposal? Join the conversation December 1 at 10 a.m. ET/9:00 a.m. CT by registering here .
Rep. Ed Massey, KTRS Executive Secretary Gary Harbin, and members of their teams will provide an overview of the proposed TRS pension reform and follow-up with Q&A.

KASA members received an overview document last Friday that outlined the proposal currently in the development stages. This proposal would create a new benefit tier for future school district employees who have never been a member of TRS, hired for the first time after January 1, 2022. It would not affect current TRS members in any way. All stakeholders are engaged in the process to ensure a proposal that addresses the needs of current TRS members while attracting future generations of educators. It is uncertain when legislators may act on this proposal.

Please submit your questions here  by 8 a.m. ET Tuesday, December 1st to ensure they are addressed in the conversation. Should you need additional information prior to December 1, please contact Executive Director Rhonda Caldwell ( or 859.583.5652).
