Retirement in your Peripheral Vision?

This year, the Office of Benefits & Retirement Services will be hosting our annual retirement seminar a little bit differently! Typically, we cover all the information regarding retirement in one night; however, this year we will be hosting two separate webinars:

  • Your Virginia Retirement System benefits
  • Benefits available to you through PWCS and Lincoln Financial

The first seminar, “What are my Virginia Retirement System Benefits?” will be held Monday, November 9, 2020 from 4 - 5 pm.  Virginia Retirement System specialist, Stephanie Barkalow, will discuss all the benefits of VRS retirement. Topics covered will be

  • plan types
  • retirement eligibility
  • payout option
  • life insurance and
  • health insurance credits (HIC)

Register Online

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

If you are planning or considering retirement, you must contact Kristin Brittigan to schedule a retirement planning session as soon as possible. If you wish to retire at the end of the school year, it is advisable that you complete your paperwork by March 31 so your retirement pension can be filed with VRS in time to start your pension on the correct date.
