The ERS Texas Income Protection Plan℠ (TIPP) website highlights disability benefit provisions offered to participants in the Texas Employees Group Benefits Program (GBP). This website doesn't imply eligibility or participation in the disability benefit plans, and it is not intended to affect the plans' eligibility rules, benefits, conditions, or limitations. It doesn't cover every detail, and it's not a contract between you and ERS.
The Master Benefit Plan Document (MBPD PY 2018—Effective 1/1/18)(1.1MB) supersedes all other print and electronic documentation about the TIPP disability program. If the content of this website differs from the plan documents, the terms of the plan documents will control. We expect to continue to provide the benefits described; however, ERS reserves the right to modify, amend, suspend, or terminate these benefits at any time.
