What’s an iupat?
What’s the difference between a iupata and a motel pension?
The differences are important because many Texas teachers, who receive a total pension of about $1.2 million a year, are ineligible for any kind of federal retirement benefits.
Instead, the Texas Education Agency, which oversees the pension, pays them a monthly benefit based on their yearly salary.
But the state’s top elected official says teachers are eligible for retirement benefits if they live in a retirement home.
If they do not, the state will pay them an annual pension.
The state also sets a limit for their benefits based on the average household income in Texas.
For example, if a teacher earns $50,000 a year and spends $10,000 in rent a month, they qualify for a total retirement benefit of $1,500 a year.
But if the teacher spends $75,000 on rent a year or $70,000, they’ll only get a $400 monthly pension.
In fact, some of the most recent figures released by the Texas Teachers Retirement System show that some teachers are receiving more than $1 million in federal pension benefits.
According to a 2012 study from the Center for Retirement Research at George Mason University, teachers received a total of $6.2 billion in federal retirement benefit payments in 2011.
About 9% of those workers were living at their homes, and in some cases the homes were in rural areas or in low-income communities, the study found.
Some of the homes, such as the one that teachers live in, are owned by the state.
In Texas, the retirement system also pays the state $6 million each year to administer its retirement fund.
A recent analysis by the National Center for Education Statistics, an independent research organization, found that teachers received about $2.8 million in state pension benefits from the pension system in 2012.
In addition, Texas teachers are required to contribute at least 5% of their gross earnings to their retirement accounts each year.
As part of their state pension plan, teachers also receive a $10 per day federal minimum wage for the first six months of retirement.
That’s $20.50 per hour for a teacher who makes $60,000 and who earns $65,000.
But teachers can opt out of their plan, and the state pays them the full cost of their benefits.
If a teacher chooses not to opt out, the fund will keep a portion of their pension payments, which is known as a “non-refundable contribution” or NRCC.
The teacher could receive more than the full $10 for a six-month period if they opt out.
The National Center on Retirement Security, an advocacy group that has worked to help teachers, said teachers who are eligible to receive the retirement benefits should make a clear distinction between the two retirement systems.
“The Texas Teachers Pension System has a $1 billion retirement fund, and that fund is funded from contributions by the taxpayers,” said David L. Schulze, director of retirement security and tax policy at the National Association of Retired People.
“That’s how teachers can get the benefits they deserve.”
But teachers who don’t opt out can opt in to a separate, $2,000 fund that the state set up for retired teachers.
The retired teachers also get a special benefit known as “net-savings” and can opt into it.
Teachers who don the $2 million can also get $5,000 from the state if they don’t want to take advantage of the state retirement fund or if they’re unable to live on their own.
The Texas Teachers Association says its members are eligible.
But it’s not clear how many teachers in Texas opt in.
The union also says it doesn’t want students to be confused about the difference.
“We’re not saying that the teachers are the same as the Texas pension fund,” said Nancy St. Germain, executive director of the Texas Teacher’s Association.
“They’re not the same.”
Texas teachers will be able to receive their $1 for the next six months, starting in October.
But because of the lack of a uniform plan, it’s unknown how many Texas students will get the $1-for-one-month benefit or if the teachers will have to take out a loan.
That will depend on how many students graduate from high school in Texas and how many graduate in the next five years.
“What they are getting in the way is not enough,” said Elizabeth K. Kollos, the director of research and analysis at the Tax Policy Center, a conservative think tank.
“It’s just not the way it should be.”
