ERFC is a Defined-Benefit Pension Plan

ERFC Contributions Chart

ERFC is a defined-benefit retirement plan known as a pension, in which a specific amount is guaranteed for each participant for life after retirement. Generally, FCPS employees are automatically enrolled as members if they are a full-time educational, administrative or support employee and they are eligible for a retirement benefit after 5 years of service. ERFC retirement benefit supplements the primary benefits you will earn from the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) and Social Security.
