As temperatures rise and Texans dig out from this catastrophic winter storm, ATPE wants you to be aware of some important information:

  • The Teacher Retirement System (TRS) has information on its website regarding emergency prescription refills as well as toll-free phone numbers for medical and prescription questions under TRS-ActiveCare, TRS-Care Standard, and TRS-Care Medicare plans.
  • The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) has shared important tips for documenting any damage to your home and avoiding fraudulent repairs.

As previously announced, ATPE at the Virtual Capitol has been postponed to Sunday, February 28. You may register for this free member event through 5 p.m. Thursday, February 25. Learn more and register here.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our members and their families during this stressful time.
