I signed up for the TRS Age 55 Retirement Program because I wasn't sure if I was eligible and the time to apply was expiring. Now I realize that for me it doesn't make sense because I will have worked for 31 years when I reach 55 years old. I called TRS and they won't remove me from the program and will continue to take funds out of my paycheck until I have been working for 27 years. I need help from the Office of the Comptroller to solve this program. I am paying a lot of money towards a retirement plan I am totally not eligible for and to be penalized for 27 years is horrific.
