Why Is the MBP Important to Your Employees?

The MBP is your employees' annual benefit statement based on information you reported to VRS as of June 30. It provides account balance information, retirement eligibility and eligibility for other benefits, such as group life insurance and the health insurance credit, as applicable. Using the promotional resources on this page, encourage Plan 1 and Plan 2 employees to view their MBP through their myVRS accounts.

You can direct employees to About Your Member Benefit Profile to learn more about their annual benefit statement.

Note: MBPs are currently not available for Hybrid Retirement Plan members. However, myVRS now offers additional services for hybrid plan members. Hybrid members may view their defined benefit and defined contribution account balances from the myVRS homepage, and access the goal-based Retirement Planner and Benefit Estimator, available to all members in myVRS.

Hybrid Retirement Plan members: Access your account summary online.

You can view your defined benefit and defined contribution account balances as well as projected retirement date from your account homepage. Your voluntary contribution percentage also appears on your myVRS homepage as a reminder to maximize your employer match while saving for retirement.

On target for your desired retirement date and income?
As a reminder, all members have access to the myVRS Benefit Estimator and the Retirement Planner to help you evaluate if you're on track to meet your retirement goals.

If you are a Plan 1 or Plan 2 member, be sure to view the retirement income analysis on your MBP. The income analysis shows a total retirement income estimate compared to a retirement income target of 80 percent of your compensation, as of June 30.

Hybrid members can view an analysis by creating a retirement plan in myVRS.

The retirement income estimate found on your MBP or in myVRS combines your estimated unreduced benefit and a Social Security estimate. Your analysis includes tips for "closing the gap" between your estimated retirement income and your 80 percent benchmark.
