From time to time, VRS receives reports from members and employers that various companies or groups have contacted them via email or phone to offer retirement counseling services or insurance products.
Please be aware:
Counseling services are free, whether by phone or in person at the VRS counseling center and are available by contacting VRS.
VRS also offers free retirement planning and benefit education sessions throughout the state at colleges, universities, other public locations and the VRS offices in Richmond. Members may receive occasional invites to these sessions via email.
Members also may use their myVRS account to review their VRS benefits, assess their retirement readiness using the myVRS Retirement Planner and create monthly benefit estimates using the Benefit Estimator. In addition, members can take advantage of the free money-management and retirement-planning articles, videos and mini-courses available through myVRS Financial Wellness.
Exercise caution in responding to unsolicited offers of retirement planning or advice. If uncertain if a communication originated with VRS, please call 1-888-827-3847.
