We are grateful to all of our employees for their years of hard work and dedication in educating and taking care of our students. SCS retirees enjoy several choices for life and health benefits if you meet specified requirements. 

Ready to start the retirement process? Shelby County Schools Benefits recommend that employees submit their retirement information at least 90 days in advance of their retirement date. Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System (TCRS) will take at least 60-90 days to process retirement applications after they are submitted and certified by the employer (SCS). TCRS will accept retirement applications no more than 150 days in advance of the retirement date. **

Finalizing your retirement checklist:

  • Online submission of your intent to retire in the Employee Portal
  • Online submission of your retirement application through TCRS
  • Complete and return required documents to Benefits
