Loudoun County Public Schools participates in the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) as its primary pension plan. Full-time employees eligible for benefits are enrolled in a VRS plan based upon their hire date.  

    Mandatory Contribution

    Under the Code of Virginia, the VRS Retirement Plan and Group Term Life Insurance benefits are mandatory for regular full-time employees. All full-time LCPS employees are required to pay a 5 % member contribution to VRS; Loudoun County Public Schools contributes the employer share for the VRS Retirement Plan and the full cost of the Basic Group Term Life Insurance.
