Benefits : Classified and University Staff Retirement

All full-time classified employees, as well as University Staff Operational & Administrative employees must participate in the Virginia Retirement System (VRS).  Additionally, University Staff Managerial & Professional employees and University Staff Executive employees must choose to participate in either VRS or the Optional Retirement Plan (ORP).  Careful consideration should be given to this decision, as once a retirement program is elected, the decision is irreversible.
