Maximum compensation and salary increase limitations for computing retirement benefits

This maximum compensation limit under Internal Revenue Code 401(a)(17) only applies to those TRSGA employees hired on or after July 1, 1996. All employees hired prior to this date are "grandfathered" with no maximum salary limitation. For more information concerning maximum compensation limitations, visit the TRS site relating to salary limitations or contact TRS at 800-352-0650.

In determining a member’s highest two-year average salary for computing the retirement benefit, limitations on salary increases may apply. The possible salary increase limitations apply to TRS members whose current membership date is on or after July 1, 1984. These limits are determined each year. For more information concerning salary increase limitations, visit the TRS site relating to salary limitations or contact TRS at 800-352-0650.
