Your Association Is Ready To Help
If you work for the state, you know how important public servants are to the citizens of Texas—and you need a membership association that understands, too. The Texas Public Employees Association (TPEA) is that association.
Founded in 1946 by dedicated state employees, TPEA has advocated for almost 75 years to promote and preserve the compensation and quality benefits provided to state employees and retirees—the benefits that make it possible for Texans to devote themselves to careers in public service.
We're the organization guarding your retirement income from legislative changes that could reduce your pension. We've been fighting for years, and this is no time to stop. Defined Benefit pension plans have been questioned here and all over the country.
Together, we can defend your pension. TPEA works tirelessly in the Texas legislature to protect your future pension benefits. An experienced lobbyist, paid by TPEA, TPEA provides legislative representation, proposes legislation, obtains sponsors and testifies on behalf of TPEA members at legislative committee meetings, something state agencies cannot do!
Though ERS provides options to Texas State Employees for Dental and Vision coverage, TPEA additionally offers these options to give members a choice when exploring group coverage. Finding the right coverage should be simple, especially when dental and vision costs are so expensive.
The good news? Your membership gives you access to a wide range of quality insurance plans. As a member, you'll enjoy access to policies designed to protect your medical and financial well-being--everything from life insurance to long-term care plans. And, thanks to our strength in numbers, you can enroll in the coverage you need at discounted group rates.
Looking forward to meeting others and socializing again? Join TPEA now and be ready for future opportunities like nights out with friends old and new, group travel, volunteering, and more. And that's just the beginning. You'll be invited to meetings and other events that will keep you connected to like-minded people.
Research shows that social connection is critical to our mental, physical and emotional health. That's reason alone to join. Become a member today and be among friends.
