Prince William County participates in the Virginia Retirement System (VRS). Retirement is mandatory for all full-time employees. Depending on an employee’s date of hire and previous VRS service, they are enrolled in one of three plans, Plan 1, Plan 2 or the Hybrid Plan. All employees contribute 5% of salary to the Plan which is matched actuarially by the County.
Hazardous duty employees (Police, Fire and Rescue, Sheriff, and Jail Officers) are also eligible for additional enhanced benefits under the VRS. Police and Fire employees have an additional Supplemental Retirement Plan.
The County also offers 401a and 457 defined contribution plans.
These voluntary programs offer:
Pre-tax contributions and a wide array of investment options.
There is a County match on employee 401a contributions (set by the Board of County Supervisors each fiscal year).
Eligible employees may also receive a health insurance credit at the time of retirement. This additional money is a monthly lifetime benefit that reimburses retirees for health insurance premiums.
Prince William County provides free basic life insurance that equals an employee’s salary rounded to the nearest thousand, then doubled. Employees may purchase additional life insurance for themselves, spouse and/or children.
For every year you are a member, you will receive $10 per month when you reach retirement age. For example, if you are a member for 20 years, you will get $200 a month after you reach age 60. It is vested 50% after 5 years and 100% after 10 years.
You can choose one vehicle that is titled in your name to be tax-free in Prince William County, Manassas City, or Manassas Park. You will also receive a free county sticker if you live in Prince William County.
