Our Story

A small group of individuals, who were members of several Texas public employee retirement systems, formed Texas Association of Public Employee Retirement Systems (TEXPERS) in 1989 as a statewide voluntary nonprofit association to provide quality education to trustees, administrators, professional service providers and employee groups and associations engaged or interested in the management of public employee retirement systems. The Association provides the highest quality education and services to its participating retirement systems and affiliate members. By uniting Texas public pension systems, TEXPERS works for their common interests, monitors state and federal legislative activities and enhances professional fund management and administration. Over the past 30 years, TEXPERS system and associate membership has grown substantially.
