As a State of Tennessee employee, benefits are an important part of your total compensation package. Your complete benefit package includes, medical, dental, life insurance and a non-contributory retirement plan. As you explore the various benefits, you will notice affordable premiums, generous leave policies and additional retirement savings options. There are also benefits unique to the State that you may not find anywhere else. The Sick Leave Bank and Longevity pay are two benefits that help to make the State benefit package one of the most valuable compared to other employers. Benefits are available to all regular full-time and part-time employees.
