City Pension Board Launches New Website at cokpension.org

Posted: 06/09/2015
The City of Knoxville Pension Board has a new website and new online address: www.cokpension.org. The updated website offers an easier, more user-friendly portal for current and former City of Knoxville employees who participate in the City’s Pension Plan.

The Pension Board is an independent body governed by a nine-member board: four elected employee representatives, the Mayor, the City Finance Director, a City Council representative and two community representatives appointed by the Mayor. It oversees the administration of the City’s pension fund.

“A little over a year ago, we decided it was time for an update to the Pension Board website,” said Kristi Paczkowski, the Board’s Executive Director. “Little did we know all the things that would go into getting the website up and running. Our goal was to make it more user-friendly and full of information for employees, retirees and the public. It will also assist us in administering the plans of the pension system. 

“Employees will have access to forms, which can be filled out online and printed out, and information on their respective plans. They will also be able to schedule appointments from the website to come in and evaluate their options with our staff. Retirees will be able to update their address and withholding information, and see the calendar for their monthly deposits. The public will have access to our annual financial and actual report information.

“The links shared on the website will help retirees with calculating their federal withholding needs as well as provide valuable legal information published by the Tennessee Bar Association for seniors, just to name a few resources. We are excited to have this new tool to help us serve the members and administer the plans of the City of Knoxville Employees’ Pension System.”
