October Open Enrollment for Optional Retirement Plan for Higher Education

During the month of October, Optional Retirement Plan (ORP) participants may elect to change their ORP vendor. This period does not allow for a pension plan change from the ORP to VRS or from VRS to the ORP. Three providers are available to ORP participants: DCP, Fidelity Investments and TIAA.

To change providers during Open Enrollment, please complete the Open Enrollment Provider Change Form (VRS-65P) and the enrollment and beneficiary forms for the provider you have chosen (unless you already have an existing account with that provider under the Fidelity plan number 89755 or TIAA plan number 500964). For information on the plan investments available through each provider, detailed open enrollment instructions to include Open Enrollment Provider Change form (VRS-65P), go online.

Your signed Open Enrollment Provider Change Form and any provider-specific forms required by your new provider must be received in Human Resources by close of business on October 31, 2017. Documents may be faxed to Human Resources at 703.323.3155 to the attention of Janice Cottingham. All completed provider change requests made during open enrollment take effect January 1, 2018.

Questions may be forwarded to benefits@nvcc.edu.
