Summary as passed: (all summaries)

Virginia Retirement System; hybrid defined contribution and defined benefit retirement program.  Creates a new hybrid retirement program, administered by the Virginia Retirement System, that contains a defined contribution and a defined benefit component. All new state employees, local employees, and judges commencing employment on or after January 1, 2014, would be required to participate in the hybrid plan. Employees in service on December 31, 2013, would be given the opportunity to make a one-time, irrevocable election to participate in the new hybrid program. The bill also creates a disability program for local employees participating in the hybrid plan.

The bill also makes adjustments to the existing defined benefit plan for nonvested employees, including lowering the retirement benefit multiplier from 1.7 to 1.65, basing average final compensation on 60 months of service instead of 36, and capping the cost-of-living adjustment at three percent. Any person with less than 20 years service who takes early retirement would not receive a cost-of-living adjustment until one year after he reaches normal retirement age. This bill is identical to SB 498.
