The Office of Benefits & Retirement Services has scheduled a Retirement Seminar for Monday, November 10, at the Kelly Leadership Center, in conference room 1101, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The seminar is designed for employees who are considering retirement within the next two years. Valuable information will be presented by a representative from the Virginia Retirement System (VRS), a Lincoln Alliance retirement consultant, and the Office of Benefits & Retirement Services staff. Topics will include VRS retirement, retiree health insurance, Retirement Opportunity Program (ROP) and supplemental retirement benefits. Registration is now open to employees and their spouses. Please RSVP to email@example.com and indicate your name, school/office and the number attending.
Effective October 6, 2014, the State of Virginia recognized same-sex marriage. The Prince William County Schools (PWCS), in compliance with the state, will offer benefits to the spouse of any employee to whom they are legally married.
PWCS requires documentation demonstrating all insured dependents meet eligibility criteria. Employees who are able to provide proof of same-sex marriage prior to October 6, 2014 will have 30 calendar days from October 6, 2014 (the qualifying event date) to submit enrollment forms and applicable documentation before coverage will become effective. Employees marrying after October 6, 2014 will have 30 days from the date of their marriage to submit the required forms and documentation. The required forms, a Midyear Benefit Change Form and Enrollment/Change Forms can be found in the Benefits section under Forms and Publications at www.pwcs.edu.
All VRS employees can log in or register for myVRS at www.varetire.org/myVRS. MBPs are currently not available for Hybrid Retirement Plan members. However, these employees can look up their current defined benefit and defined contribution account balances and other information through myVRS.
If you have any questions about the MBPs for your Plan 1 and Plan 2 employees, please call VRS toll-free at 1-888-VARETIR (1-888-827-3847) to speak with an employer advisor (select menu option 3). You can direct any questions about benefits for your Hybrid Retirement Plan employees to the Hybrid Retirement Plan Support Team at 1-855-291-2285.

According to the most recent retirement study conducted by the Employee Benefit Research Institute, 56% of Americans donít know how much they need to save for a comfortable retirement. If you are one of them, know that your Lincoln Financial Retirement Consultant is on hand to answer your questions and help manage your retirement plan.
Talk to your Retirement Consultant about the benefits of your employer-sponsored supplemental retirement plan. They can help you enroll in your plan, go over your investment options, name beneficiaries, or change your contribution rate. If you are approaching retirement, your Retirement Consultant can also help you understand how Social Security, your pension, and your retirement plan work together to provide you with income during your retirement.
We encourage you to directly contact the Lincoln Financial representative assigned to your school or location. Assignments and contact information may be found by clicking here. A retirement consultant is available at the Kelly Leadership Center by appointment on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.† Please contact Jill Argueta at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703.791.8927 to schedule an appointment.† Our Spanish Language representative is available the first Wednesday each month as well.
Members can have live, instant or planned visits with doctors seven days a week, 24 hours a day with the use of two-way video conferencing and instant messaging. The cost of this online visit is $49 total. Members pay their current PCP copay. The difference is charged to the group’s claim experience. This cost is much less than an urgent care visit or ER visit and even some doctor office visits.
