VRS has revised member handbooks to include details on purchasing prior service through the myVRS account and to provide other updates.

The member handbook can answer many benefit questions for members throughout their career. The Getting Ready to Retire Guide is a valuable aid for those planning for retirement, and the Retiree Handbook is an important reference during retirement years.

Refer to the handbook for retirement eligibility requirements, benefit options, life insurance information and health insurance credit information.

The handbooks are available in PDF format on the VRS website. Plan 2 handbooks for hazardous duty positions, the Hybrid Retirement Plan Handbook, the Getting Ready to Retire Guide for Plan 1 and Plan 2 Members, the Virginia Local Disability Program (VLDP), the Virginia Sickness and Disability Program (VSDP) and the VRS Disability Retirement handbooks also are available in print. Contact VRS to obtain a print copy of the plan handbook.
