Texas Vernon’s Civil Statutes
Sec. § 2.08
Administration of Funds

The board of trustees shall:


keep separate from all other municipal funds all money and other assets it receives for the benefit of the fund;


keep a record of all claims, receipts, and disbursements and make disbursements only on vouchers signed by such persons as the board of trustees designates by resolution; and


publish annually a report containing a balance sheet showing the financial and actuarial condition of the fund, a statement showing receipts and disbursements during the year covered by the report, and such additional matters as may be determined appropriate by the board of trustees.


for the exclusive purposes of:


providing benefits to members and their beneficiaries; and


defraying reasonable expenses of administering the fund;


with the care, skill, prudence, and diligence under the circumstances then prevailing that a prudent person acting in a similar capacity and familiar with such matters would use in the conduct of an enterprise of a similar character and with similar aims;


by diversifying the investments of the fund to minimize the risk of large losses, unless under the circumstances it is clearly prudent not to do so; and


in accordance with the laws, documents, and instruments governing the fund.


The accounts of the fund and money held by the fund to which this Act applies may not be assigned and are not subject to execution, levy, attachment, garnishment, or other legal process.


The right of a member to a pension, to the return of contributions, the pension, or retirement allowance itself, any optional benefit or death benefits, any other right accrued or accruing to any person under this Act, and the money in the trust created by this Act may not be assigned except as specifically provided by this Act or as provided under the terms of a qualified domestic relations order, as defined by Section 804.001, Government Code, and are not subject to execution, levy, attachment, garnishment, the operation of bankruptcy or insolvency law, or any other process of law.
