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 certificated staff participate in TCRS. 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.
