December Reduction Strategies
Absorb Workforce Transition Act retirement costs in the Virginia Retirement System
When an agency implements layoffs for employees eligible for retirement, in lieu of severance, the employee is offered an enhanced retirement package. In such cases, the agency would normally pre-pay the Virginia Retirement System for the cost of the enhanced package. This savings strategy would require the Virginia Retirement System to temporarily absorb such costs incurred as the result of layoffs in the Governor's 2008-10 reduction plan and amortize the cost as part of future actuarial valuations.
