Tennessee Pension Plan
The Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System (TCRS) is designed to provide three types of benefits: retirement benefits, disability benefits, or survivor benefits. This coverage grows in value each year you teach.
All full-time teachers are covered by Group I of the retirement system as a condition of employment. As a teacher, you are required to contribute 5% of your salary to the retirement system. Contributions are made on a tax-deferred basis. Learn more about TCRS.
