All regular full-time employees are eligible for VRS membership. The VRS retirement benefit is fully paid by the County and participation is mandatory unless you are age 65 or older. Full VRS retirement benefits are avail- able at age 50 with 30 years of service, age 55 with 30 years of service or age 65 with 5 years of service. VRS retirement benefits are based on Average Final Compen- sation of highest 36 consecutive months of creditable compensation, age, and years affiliated with VRS. A special retirement provision through VRS is offered for Sworn Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters. Virginia Retirement System (VRS) Life Insurance VRS life insurance participation is mandatory and automatic for all regular full-time employees. Benefits are based on your annual salary rounded to the next highest $1,000: your natural death benefit is twice the annual salary; accidental death benefit is four times the annual salary. Example, if your annual salary is $25,200, salary is rounded up to the next highest thousand, $26,000. Natu-ral death benefit is $52,000; accidental death benefit is $104,000. The formula to calculate the life insurance premium is your base annual salary divided by 24 pay periods multiplied by .0052, the factor charged by VRS. For an annual salary of $25,200, the life insurance semi-monthly premium would be $5.46. Optional Life Insurance is available through VRS. This program allows you to purchase additional life insurance for yourself and your spouse or children. You are responsible for paying the premiums through payroll deduction. Proof of good health is required for all in-dividuals to be insured if coverage is not elected within 30 days of eligibility under basic group life insurance or of the qualifying event.
