At this time, you should be here because you are:
- an educator who is joining the MTRS for the first time, or
- an existing MTRS member who is changing school districts, or
- a former or inactive MTRS member who is returning to active service,
and your employer has registered you in our online MyTRS system and provided you with your MTRS Enrollment Assignment Sheet.
To complete your assignment, you will use MyTRS, our member self-service application.
Before continuing, PLEASE READ these instructions and important notes

4. Before you click Submit to send your enrollment data, you will be asked to review the information you have entered for accuracy. Please check your information carefully, because after you click Submit, the Enroll in the MTRS link will no longer appear on your home page.

Are you a former member of a Massachusetts public retirement system who took a refund when you left service? If so, please be aware of your limited opportunity to purchase "Section 3" creditable service at "buyback" interest.
If you established membership in a Massachusetts public retirement system on or after April 2, 2012, and you had previously been a member of a Massachusetts public retirement system and taken a refund of your account, you will have one year from the date that you re-entered public service to apply and pay for your Section 3 service purchase at the lower "buyback" interest rate (currently, 4.00%). After your first year of re-entry to membership, you will be subject to actuarial interest (currently, 8.00%). For details, see Types of purchasable service and application forms.
I have read the above instructions and information.
