Agency Information

The PRB is mandated to oversee all Texas public retirement systems, both state and local, in regard to their actuarial soundness and compliance with state law. Our mission is to provide the State of Texas with the necessary information and recommendations to ensure that our public retirement systems, whose combined assets total in the multi-billions, are actuarially sound, benefits are equitable, the systems are properly managed, tax expenditures for employee benefits are kept to a minimum while still providing for those employees, and to expand the knowledge and education of administrators, trustees, and members of Texas public pension funds.

The Texas State Pension Review Board (PRB) was created in 1979 by House Bill 1506, 66th Legislature (Chapter 801, Government Code), as an independent state agency to oversee and review state and local government retirement systems in Texas.
