 On Friday, April 5, 2013, Seven Counties Services, Inc. took an important step to protect our work, our compensation and benefits, our organization and, most importantly, our consumers.

For 36 years, Seven Counties Services, Inc. has created hope and delivered solutions to persons in our community who are affected by mental illness, developmental disabilities, addiction, trauma and abuse.

We employ 1,100 health care, support and administrative staff, serving more than 31,000 individuals and families each year.

The services our customers count on are threatened by the burden of unsustainable mandatory employer contribution rates imposed by the Kentucky Employees Retirement System (KERS).  

For years, we attempted to resolve this burden through legislative action, executive action, and even mediation with KERS. Though substantial, the efforts brought no results. Therefore, on April 5, 2013, we filed for Chapter 11 protection from KERS with the United States Bankruptcy Court, Western District of Kentucky. Seven Counties is asking the court to allow us to replace the KERS benefit with a stable, affordable benefit for our staff.
