TEACHERS' FUND FOR RETIREMENT
NDCC 15-39.1

The Teachers' Fund for Retirement was established in 1913 (S.L. 1913, Ch. 251) and is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the State Treasurer, and five members appointed by the Governor for staggered three-year terms. One of the gubernatorial appointees must be a full-time administrator, two must be classroom teachers, and two must be retired members of the fund. The State Investment Board is responsible for the investment of the assets of the TFFR. The TFFR program and State Investment programs are administered by the Retirement and Investment Office.

The purpose of the Fund is to provide retirement income and benefits for all public schools, certain colleges, and state educators. The Fund is supported by contributions from teachers in both public and private schools in the state. The State Investment Board assists in managing the Teachers' Fund for Retirement through establishment of policy and approval of securities investments.
