As the Commissioner of Education, I serve as the Chairman of the seven-member Board that administers the Massachusetts Teachers' Retirement System (MTRS). The MTRS is a contributory retirement system governed by the Commonwealth's retirement law, Chapter 32 of the Massachusetts General Laws. The MTRS is the largest of the Commonwealth's 104 contributory retirement systems and provides retirement, disability and survivor benefits to Massachusetts public school teachers, administrators and their families.
Our MTRS website is designed to provide members of the Massachusetts Teachers' Retirement System and our other colleagues with up-to-date news and information about the plan’s retirement benefits and the agency's services. There are areas specifically for employers, active members and benefit recipients and we believe our other constituencies, such as teacher and administrator groups, legislators and potential members, will also find them informative.
Please visit us often. We hope that you will find our pages interesting and useful.
