Teacher's Pension

Monthly Contributions Reconciliation (MCR)

MCR is the new method for submitting service, salary, and contributions information to Teachers’ Pensions, replacing the previous MDC methodology.

To support customers with managing MCR submissions we have built a Web Application designed to meet the specifications set by Teachers’ Pensions.

The MCR application acts as a bridge between iTrent and the Teachers’ Pension portal. Allowing data to be exported from iTrent and pulled into the appropriate format to be submitted to Teachers’ Pensions.
