History

 

Smartworksplus, inc. was founded in 2009 providing Phased Retirement services to city and state entities in Arizona. It's parent company, smartschoolsplus, was founded in 2002 by retired educators, Bill and Sandee McClelland.

Upon retirement following successful careers as educators and administrator, the President of smartworksplus, Inc. returned to work under ASRS guidelines.  The financial, intrinsic and emotional advantages of continued service to the educational field prompted the need to assist others.  After researching various retirement programs, data regarding Arizona’s work force, state legislation, and the looming workforce shortage, smartschoolsplus and smartworksplus, Inc. Phased Retirement Program were born!

smartworksplus is focused in the areas of Arizona State Retirement rules and regulations, and return to work stipulations.   The development of the Phased Retirement concept was initiated to help and assist employees with both a financial and emotional bridge to retirement.
