TCRS Employee Self Service is now available. Great news! TCRS Member Self-Service (MSS) is now available! This new, online functionality will allow you to:

Update your TCRS contact information
View your entire TCRS account history
Retrieve your member annual statement
Maintain your TCRS beneficiary information

The attached flyer shows you how to register, retrieve your annual statement, and view/update your beneficiary information.
Your account history screen may reflect additional service in the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2014 for overtime or bonuses; we will be correcting any overstated service credit in the near future. Those employees who have previously refunded their contributions may have difficulty logging into MSS; we are working on a resolution.
For assistance with Member Self-Service, navigate to and access the Member Self-Service User Guide or demonstration video available under the Concord tab. You may also call 800-770-8277, option 8 with questions.
Higher Education employees, please note: ORP members are not TCRS participants and will not be able to register for a TCRS Member Self-Service account
