Virtual spring retirement planning seminars available

It is never too early or too late to start planning for retirement.

From: Human Resources

Human Resources is committed to making sure employees are well prepared for retirement, and have set up retirement planning information sessions.

New this spring: Sessions are split into employee’s mandatory retirement plans.

  • Virginia Retirement System sessions include information on the VRS retirement options, calculating monthly benefits, increasing retirement income, life insurance, health insurance, and other VRS benefits and resources.
  • The new Optional Retirement Plan sessions include information on increasing retirement income, life insurance, health insurance, and other retirement benefits and resources. Representatives from TIAA and Fidelity will be present to discuss retirement planning and payout options as well as answer general questions.

All employees are welcome to attend. The information presented will be especially helpful to employees planning to retire within the next six years.
