What is West Virginia Retirement Plus?
The West Virginia Retirement Plus Deferred Compensation Plan is a bridge to help you achieve a secure retirement future. Combined with your employer's pension plan and Social Security (if you are eligible), this plan provides an important complement to help you save toward your financial goals in retirement.
Empower Retirement, the recordkeeper for the Plan, provides you with essential resources, services, and communications to help you plan and prepare ahead for your retirement goals. In addition, the West Virginia State Treasurer’s Office oversees the plan on your behalf.
Who is eligible?
State employees, including permanent part-time and leased employees, are immediately eligible to enroll following his or her start date. This also pertains to individuals who perform services by appointment or election for which compensation is paid. There is no age limit or service-length requirement. Employees of cities, counties, towns, and political subdivisions that have adopted the plan are also eligible to enroll.
