HISD Savings and Retirement

  • The HISD Savings and Retirement Office administers several unique programs within the HISD Benefits department.

    Using a direct-contact customer service model for one-on-one counseling sessions, telephone counseling, and seminars, employees receive personalized service and a clear unbiased perspective on their retirement income and TRS-Care healthcare benefits. Appointments are recommended and walk-ins are serviced as time permits. We also administer other benefit programs for the district, including:

    • Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) counseling
    • 403(b) Tax Sheltered Annuity
    • 457 Deferred Compensation
    • Financial Fitness

    The 403(b) and 457 savings plans offer employees the opportunity to voluntarily save additional tax-deferred dollars toward retirement and after-tax Roth 403b contributions. Employees are in control of their retirement contributions with 24-hour online access through the Omni website at: omni403b.com You must register to change contributions, select a vendor, and request loan and hardship distribution certificates.

    Our mission is to provide exceptional service to employees by being accessible and by clearly explaining their benefit options, thereby allowing employees to focus on the overall strategic mission of the district.
