    The above dates are for those working until the end of contract.  If you choose to retire at another time throughout the year, the 100 day deadline still applies in order to receive the sick leave incentive.  Your retirement commitment letter must be in the Retirement Office 100 calendar days prior to your last day of work.

     

    You may fax the commitment letter to 594-9523 or send it via school mail to the Benefits Office, 3rd Floor, Andrew Johnson Building.  If you would like confirmation receipt, please state that on the form.

     

     

    Once you have sent in your commitment letter, classified employees should contact the Knox County Pension Board at 215-2323.  Classified employees choosing to continue insurance at retirement (health, dental, vision, or life) should also contact the Benefits Department for the appropriate forms.
