Workforce Transition Act (State Employees)


If you are a state employee and involuntarily separated from employment, you may be eligible for transitional severance benefits under the Workforce Transition Act (WTA).

If you voluntarily resign or retire from state employment, you are not eligible for benefits under WTA.

If you are a Hybrid Retirement Plan member, you may be eligible for severance benefits under the defined benefit component of your plan if you are involuntarily separated from employment. See your human resource office.

For more information about your options under the defined contribution component of the Hybrid Retirement Plan, call toll-free 1-VRS-DC-Plan1 (1-877-327-5261, select Option 1) to speak with an Investor Services Representative.

Eligible Employees

Note: Certain other groups of employees also are eligible for benefits under WTA. Refer to Section 2.2-3202 of the Code of Virginia for a full listing of those eligible.
