I stopped teaching many years ago but I suggest you check with your county's HR department and ask them. Most states offer transfer options to combine with other retirement programs. That is where I would start, it is not an unusual situation.

The Board of Education in Frankfort can put you with the right people. There's a retirement association, but the name escapes me. I think you'll be told that you can "buy" years. Several of my co-workers have done that so they could retire. if you join KEA (Kentucky Education Association) when you move, they can also supply you with answers.

Kentucky Retirement Systems. I don't know about the process, but I used to live down the road from their building.

Retirement in Kentucky is changing for the worse right now. If you're planning on teaching for a while, then you'll probably be OK. I had 26 years and bought a year out of some retirement I had from a year working at Murray State. Doing it that way, 1 year only cost me $1300. If I bought time trying to get to retirement years, 2 years would have cost me $19,000

Here is a random "teaching" question.. After 8 years I will have 8 years as a special education teacher. I am seriously considering a career change. Does anyone have any suggestions of what else I can do with a teacher degree?

Sorry, I don't know anything about KY's retirement system. I hope you have good luck finding the info you need!
