“As TRS continues to modernize our investment and benefit-delivery operations, we are also strongly committed to providing our members with easy-to-understand, accurate and timely information regarding their retirement system and benefits,” says TRS Board Chairman Jim Lee. “The GCI Group has extensive experience helping public- and private-sector clients worldwide.”
TRS, the nation’s seventh largest public retirement system, delivers retirement and related benefits that have been authorized by the Texas Legislature and manages a $107.5 billion trust fund established to finance member benefits. More than 1.2 million public education and higher education employees and retirees participate in the system.
GCI will be responsible for establishing two-way communications channels with members, retirees and public that provide key stakeholders with easy-to-understand, accurate and timely information regarding the retirement system and benefits; creating communications materials that align with the organization’s upgrades and roll-out of modernized benefits-delivery options; and assisting in reaching organization’s goal of 100 percent member engagement.
