 Retirement: The Tennessee Consolidate Retirement System (TCRS) & the Optional Retirement Plans (ORP) - Enrollment in retirement is mandatory.   If you have never worked for a State of Tennessee agency and you were hired after June 1, 2014, you will be enrolled in the hybrid version of the retirement plans.  This means 5% of your salary is deducted and invested toward your retirement, and you are automatically enrolled in the 401k at 2% with an up to $50 match each month.  A total of 7% will be deducted each month for retirement.  Click here to review information on the 401k  Empower Retirement (401k/401k ROTH/457) - 800-922-7772
