Hybrid Plan VRS Members See Auto - Increase in Voluntary Contributions in January

By: Orange County Communications Department

This is a reminder that auto escalation for VRS Hybrid employees took effect on the January 6, 2023, pay date. If you were not already contributing the maximum voluntary contribution of 4%, your voluntary VRS contribution automatically increased by 0.5% effective on the January 6, 2023, pay date. This occurs once every three (3) years until you reach the maximum voluntary contribution of 4%. Please see the below graphic for more details. The higher your voluntary contribution, the more you can save on a pre - tax basis and take advantage of both compound earnings and employer matching funds. To visualize how this increase will impact your paycheck, check out the Hybrid Member Paycheck Calculator.
