The Connecticut Teachers’ Retirement System (TRS) is governed by Chapter 167(a) of the General Statutes as amended by the state legislature. The system is administered by the Teachers’ Retirement Board (TRB), which thanks to passage of a state law in 2023 expanding the body, has grown to 16 members.

An insurance trust was established in 2014 by the TRB, in collaboration with the state treasurer, to shore-up the healthcare fund Connecticut’s retired educators depend on. Connecticut’s chief financial officer will have responsibility for the long-term asset allocation of the trust with input from the Investment Advisory Council (IAC).
