Your defined benefit plan
The Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System (TCRS), provides lifetime retirement, survivor and disability benefits for teachers and their beneficiaries.
Recognized as one of the best managed defined benefit plans in the country, TCRS provides lifetime retirement, survivor and disability benefits for teachers and their beneficiaries. After a five-year vesting period, a teacher becomes eligible to receive a monthly benefit at retirement once the age or service requirement is met. The benefit is calculated by the teacher’s years of service and salary. The benefit provided by TCRS is a solid foundation for building a retirement future.
