“If there is one person I trust when it comes to helping people navigate the retirement process, it has to be VRS support. The support and guidance provided was straight forward and in my best interest.”
– Joan Krause – Executive Secretary

We know people like you, sitting right where you are, thinking about retirement and not exactly knowing what to do. We were in your shoes not too long ago. We wish we knew what we know now before we went to the Human Resource / Benefits Department.

Are you aware that employees retiring under the (VRS) Virginia Retirement System will have their salary reduced by half, and will lose 75% of the face value of their life insurance?

If you have enough years in the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) to retire, you need information, and you need it soon.That is why we set up VRS Support.


We want to share information to help you make the right decisions about your retirement.
