About the Arkansas Teacher Retirement System

Since 1937, the Arkansas Teacher Retirement System (ATRS) has been providing retirement benefits to Arkansas's public school and education employees. ATRS pursues excellence in managing the pension fund and strives to deliver exemplary service to its members and stakeholders.

ATRS is a defined benefit plan for public school and other public education employees. It is administered as a "qualified" retirement plan under the provisions of IRS § 401(a). The state statutes contain the benefit provisions for our members at Arkansas Code §§ 24-7-201 et. seq., which are supplemented by ATRS Rules and Regulations.

Our newly designed web site includes general information about ATRS with featured sections devoted to active and retired members as well as covered employers. We hope you find this information informative and useful.

Individual requests for access to ATRS's public records may be obtained by contacting ATRS by mail, telephone, fax or e-mail.
