Be Aware of Marketing Contacts Referencing TCRS

People nearing retirement are attractive to marketing firms that get a fee for referrals to businesses offering retirement products. We have become aware of third-party organizations approaching members to offer retirement planning services. When contacting our members, these marketing firms often reference your future TCRS retirement benefits.

Retirement planning and counseling are services already offered at no charge to all members of the retirement plan. Members of RetireReadyTN, including TCRS and the State 401(k)/457(b) plans, can meet a RetireReadyTN Plan Advisor for assistance with retirement planning, counseling, or to discuss any other financial planning needs.

Protect yourself against companies that may be looking to profit for their services. Information on how to schedule a Retirement Readiness Review or a Retirement Counseling session is included below.

Retirement Readiness Review

Get a complete picture of your retirement readiness by meeting with your RetireReadyTN Plan Advisor.
