In 1981, the ACC Board of Trustees decided that the college would not participate in Social Security System. Thus, for retirement purposes, ACC employees must participate in either the Texas Retirement System (TRS), Optional Retirement Program (ORP) or ACC Money Purchase Plan (ACCMPP).
If an employee has participated in Social Security with another employer, when they retire from ACC, their potential Social Security benefits may be affected. For additional information, please review information for government employees provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the following documents:
- Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP)
- Government Pension Offset (GPO)
- Applicability of WEP to Texas TRS & ORP Programs
- Social Security Notice 1945
