Your Hard Work and Dedication Come With an Incredible Perk

As a full-time FCPS educational, administrative, or support employee, you contribute to ERFC—a lifetime guaranteed pension. Stay five years (or more!) with FCPS and you’ll receive an ERFC pension on top of your state pension from the Virginia Retirement System (VRS). FCPS is one of the few school districts to reward employees with a second pension. As you progress toward retirement, take advantage of these ERFC resources to better understand the value of this amazing benefit.

Schedule a Question Session at Any Stage of Your Career

While you're not required to meet with a retirement specialist in order to retire, we're here to help. Call us at 703-426-3900, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., to schedule a 30-minute Question Session. You can choose a virtual appointment or meet with a staff member in person at the ERFC office. A few things to note:

  • The session will only cover ERFC-related information. If you have questions regarding VRS, FCERS, or FCPS HR Benefit information, please contact those organizations directly.
  • ERFC cannot provide financial advice regarding taxes, estate planning, or retirement date selection. Please contact a professional tax or financial advisor to help you with those questions.
  • Before the session, please run your retirement estimate in ERFCDirectso that your retirement specialist can discuss that information with you.

What If I Leave FCPS?

If you leave an ERFC-covered position with FCPS, you have two options when it comes to your ERFC accumulated contributions.
