TCSS ONLINE EMPLOYEE SELF-SERVICE PORTAL – https://mypay.tcss.net. Users self-register, so there is no need to contact Central Office staff for a user ID/password. This self-service portal allows employees to make name changes (must attach copy of Social Security Card online and must also notify the Retirement System through Member Online Services). The portal will also allow you to print copies of your payroll checks and W-2 forms. You will need your employee ID to register (see your local bookkeeper if you do not know this). You will also receive an email from a Gmail account to complete registration, so don’t be alarmed – it isn’t spam or worse!
