Retiree Information

life insurance

Don't forget!  As a retiree from Kingsport City Schools, chances are you have a life insurance policy. KCS provides life insurance at no cost to employees.  Supplemental and dependent life insurance is also offered. The amount of this policy may vary depending on what plan was in place at the date of your retirement.  
It is your beneficiaries who collect this benefit.  Your beneficiary designation must be made on a form which we provide.  We are glad to verify or update your information at any time.  For details on your specific benefit for life insurance or to update your information, please feel free to contact Tabatha Graham in the HR Department at (423) 378-2116 or
