About the Gwinnett Retirement Services Department

The Gwinnett Retirement Services Department provides information and services related to the Gwinnett Board of Education’s employee retirement plans, savings plans, and the long term disability plan.

The department offers Gwinnett Retirement System (GRS) counseling services for prospective retirees, assistance to the School District’s existing GRS retirees, benefit processing for GRS beneficiaries, and provides information to assist former employees related to their GRS vesting/benefit status. Another key service we provide is assistance with the School District’s 403(b) & 457(b) retirement savings plans.

The unique combination of the GRS retirement plan, 403(b) & 457(b) savings plans, and membership in a State of Georgia retirement plan offers our employees the opportunity to provide themselves with secure, life long benefits at retirement.


The Gwinnett Retirement Services Department supports the GRS Administrative Committee in performing the day to day functions required to operate the Plan. The mission of the Retirement Services Department is to provide Gwinnett County Public Schools employees and retirees with the information, guidance, support, and service they need to plan and achieve a comfortable, secure, and independent retirement; and to manage the assets of the Plan to ensure the promise of life long benefits.
