Establish achievable goals

Our investment portfolios are focused around your individual needs and goals

Close your income gap

Make up for the income your government pension plan won’t cover

Access education and support

» 403(b) Retirement Savings Plan
Another option you may consider when planning for retirement is a 403(b) Savings Plan. While very similar to a 457(b) plan, there is a more involvement required on your behalf to get started. You must first establish a 403(b) account with an investment provider from a list of 50+ TRS-approved vendors, and then elect contributions on a pretax or Roth basis (if available).

Investment Options:

  • Investments in the plan are managed by a provider of your choosing, and plan administration services are provided by TCG Administrators. Once you have established your plan, TCG can help with distributions, transfers, loans, and rollovers. Investment questions must always be directed to your individual plan provider

How to enroll:

  • Click here to download a list of approved vendors
  • Evaluate and contact a vendor on the list and contact them directly to establish your retirement account
  • After creating your account with a vendor, click Enroll to setup your online TCG account where you can elect and modify your contributions
  • Follow each step until you get a confirmation notice… & you’re done!
» FICA Alternative Plan
If you are a part-time, seasonal, or temporary employee, you do not qualify for one of the retirement plans above. Instead, you are automatically participating in a FICA Alternative plan set up by your employer. While Social Security requires that the equivalent of 12.4% of an employee’s salary be contributed each month (6.2% employee, 6.2% employer), the FICA Alternative Plan requires only a 7.5% contribution to a retirement account. The deferrals are made on a “pretax” basis, unlike Social Security, which are made on an “after-tax” basis.
This means you are automatically contributing to a savings account instead of paying into Social Security.

FICA Alternative Account Investment Options:

  • FICA Diversified Portfolio—The Diversified Portfolio is comprised of a broad range of equity and bond mutual funds, as well as individual bonds typically held to maturity, and is periodically changed to adapt to changing market conditions.
  • FICA Government Income Portfolio—All investment instruments issued by and/or backed by the U.S. Government.
