All Full-time and Part-time employees become members of the Texas County & District Retirement System (TCDRS). Members contribute 7% of their gross salary each pay period to the retirement system. Member contributions are matched by the County (2 dollars for every 1 dollar contributed) at retirement.
In order for members to be eligible to benefit from the County's matching contributions, they must have 8 years of service.
Members are eligible for retirement if they meet one of the three following criteria:
Be 60 years of age and have 8 years of service
Their age plus years of service = 75 (years of service must be at least 8 years)
