Use of Benefit Calculators

Since verified member information is NOT always used in generating estimates produced by online calculators, TRA assumes no responsibility or liability for the accuracy of the information provided.

Calculators provide users with estimates that may be different than actual amounts. Estimates produced by these calculators shall not be considered final or binding benefit amounts or purchase costs.

Eligibility and calculation of benefits or purchase amounts are governed by laws in effect at the time benefits or purchase amounts become payable.

You are responsible for maintaining security and control of any and all IDs, passwords, and identification challenge responses.

You are responsible for keeping your contact information including mailing address, phone number and email address up to date in your Account Profile.

Notification Requirements

You should immediately notify TRA if you believe there has been an unauthorized transaction, unauthorized access to your account, or your password or challenge responses have been compromised.

Messaging Charges

If you choose to be notified via SMS message services or any other messaging service, your services providers’ message and data rates may apply.
