Teachers Retirement System joins other state agencies in extending partner benefits

Posted on 01 Jul 2015 at 10:13am

The Teachers Retirement System of Texas, which provides benefits to the state’s retired public school employees, announced late yesterday (Tuesday, June 30) it extend benefits to the spouses of employees in same-sex marriages effective immediately.

The University of Texas System, Texas A&M University System and the Employee Retirement System of Texas also extended the same benefits this week.

The decision comes following Friday’s historic U.S. Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality.
