Texas Retirees Aged 70-74 to Receive $2,400

Under the provisions of the new law, retired teachers aged between 70 and 74 will benefit from a $2,400 stipend. The payments are expected to be distributed by the end of the year, providing additional financial support to this specific demographic.

The Texas Retired Teachers Association has confirmed that this stipend is a one-time payment, offering financial relief to retired educators during the holiday season. The association outlines that those aged 74 and above may be eligible for an even higher payment, potentially reaching up to $7,500.

To ensure a smooth distribution process, teachers who opted for paper checks can anticipate receiving their stipends via mail by December 28. Alternatively, those who selected direct deposits will see the funds credited to their bank accounts on December 29.
