Membership FAQs

Joining TPEA

I receive your informational emails at work, so why should I join TPEA?

Without a professional and effective advocate on your side, there’s no assurance your valuable benefits won’t be whittled away. TPEA membership is an inexpensive investment that ensures you have a professional and well-respected voice at the Capitol looking out for your interests and the benefits so critical to your financial well-being. Our advocacy is only possible with the support of a strong, engaged membership—in other words, with your support.

In additional to supporting advocacy for active and retired state employees, TPEA members also receive additional communications and have access to a variety of services and discounts (log in for full details). By using just a few of these discounts, you can easily save more than the cost of membership.

How are your dues dollars used?

Your dues dollars enable TPEA to provide professional legislative advocacy from an experienced team of lobbyists who have formed strong relationships with key decision makers and have extensive knowledge of the issues facing active and retired state employees. In addition, dues allow us to deliver comprehensive yet easy-to-understand communications about legislative issues and policies, as well as facilitate valuable ancillary benefit programs. All of your dues dollars stay in Texas.

I’ve retired. Can I still be a member?

Yes! TPEA invites retired state employees to continue their membership (or join for the first time) in the Retiree category. The dues are only $2.50 per month and can be deducted from your annuity. If you have recently retired and would like to maintain your membership, please join online or contact the state office for assistance.

I’ve left state employment. Can I still be a member?

Yes! We welcome former state employees and friends of state government in our Associate category. Dues are only $7.50 per month. Not only is this a great way to support the state workforce (and protect future benefits you might have earned during your state employment), but also you will have access to TPEA’s services and discounts.
