Retiree FAQs

How do I report a change of address?
You can submit a
Retiree Change of Address Authorization (Form 15C). The form is available on our website, or you can request one from TRSL by phone or email.


What can I do if my benefit check is late or missing?
Benefit checks are mailed the last working day of the month. Replacement checks are issued after the fifth of the month. However, if you know your check was either stolen or destroyed, or if it’s past the fifth of the month and you haven’t received it, call TRSL at 225-925-6446 or toll free (outside the Baton Rouge area) at 1-877-ASK-TRSL (1-877-275-8775).



How do I change my federal tax withholding?
You can change your federal tax withholding through our online
Member Access. Or, you can submit a new IRS Form W-4P to TRSL. You can obtain a copy of this form from the IRS or from TRSL.


I haven’t received my 1099-R. How do I get one?
Each year, TRSL mails Form 1099-R to retirees during the last week of January. Please allow two weeks for delivery. If you haven’t received it by February 15, or if you need to request a duplicate copy or report an error, call TRSL at 225-925-6446 or 1-877-275-8775. You can also access your 1099-R information online through TRSL’s
Member Access.
