Public Pensions

Texas Municipal Retirement System (TMRS)

The City of Hutto utilizes TMRS as a pension plan for its employees. TMRS is a state-run pension plan that centralizes the way municipal employee pensions are administered. TMRS pension plans are funded through both City and employee contributions. While TMRS is administered by the State of Texas, City pension liabilities and assets are kept separate, meaning unfunded liabilities are solely the responsibility of the municipality. 

Actuarial Information as of December 31, 2022

The Actuarial Accrued Liability represents the obligations of the municipality to the pension plan, whereas the Actuarial Value of Assets represents the funds set aside to meet those obligations. The difference in these values is the Unfunded Actuarial Accrued Liability, and the ratio of assets to liabilities determines the plan's Funded Ratio.
