Kyle Laspe - Assistant Principal and ERFC Ambassador

Kyle Laspe
Assistant Principal
(Westfield High School)

Being knowledgeable about a pension means financial freedom in the future. Part of the reason I chose FCPS in comparison to surrounding districts is the defined benefit plan. The idea that saving and having multiple income paths is important. Between ERFC, VRS and a 403b plan, I feel confident that I will be comfortable when I retire. Understanding that the costs associated with retirement are increasing and being able to have that peace of mind is why I adamantly believe in ERFC and their role to help all employees at the end of our careers and beyond. I hope that all employees learn more about ERFC and retirement in general. Being an ambassador for ERFC helped me not only understand our retirement structure, but I have also helped my colleagues.

When can I retire?
