VEA – local representative

Employees are encouraged to contact any of these representatives to enroll in the voluntary deductions. Tax and direct deposit forms are available on the website. Additional forms are available at the School Board Office.

 

 

VIRGINIA RETIREMENT SYSTEM (VRS)

All full-time employees are automatically members of VRS.  Legacy employees are full-time employees hired prior to January 1, 2014 and are considered Plan 1 or Plan 2 VRS members.  Hybrid employees are full-time employees hired after January 1, 2014 and are considered Hybrid VRS members.  New hybrid members may make additional voluntary contributions.  See publication: http://www.varetire.org/pdf/publications/hybrid-handbook.pdf 

Employees contribute 5% of their salary towards their retirement with the School Board also contributing a required percentage of your annual salary.  You can visit VRS’s website www.varetire.org to enroll as an employee and learn more about the retirement benefits available to you. 

As members of VRS, employees are also entitled to group life insurance, which is paid by the School Board and is at no cost to the employee. 

NOTE: VRS contributions are only deducted over your contract period. For a 10-month employee, that is September - June. No deduction taken in the July or August paychecks. 11-month employees have deductions August - June (no July deduction) and 12 month employees have deductions taken all 12 months.

 

OPTIONAL LIFE INSURANCE

This voluntary benefit allows an employee to purchase additional life insurance for himself, his spouse or children.  This insurance is supplementary to the employer paid Group Life Insurance provided through VRS.  For more information, contact our representative Joe Chang, 800-441-2258 ext. 101 or joseph.chang@securian.com

 

HEALTH/DENTAL INSURANCE

We have three health insurance options - The Local Choice’s Anthem Key Advantage 500, Key Advantage 1000 and High Deductible Health Plan.  Dental and vision coverage is included in these plans and cannot be separated.  There is only one card for your insurance, dental and prescription benefits. 

The effective dates of your plan year are July 1, 2020– June 30, 2021.   The Richmond County School Board contributes $573 per month ($6,876 annually) to the cost of the premium.    Employees currently in the program cannot change their coverage until the next open enrollment period in the spring unless you meet the requirements of a qualifying event.  If you plan to add a newborn to your policy during the year (qualifying event), please contact the school board office in advance to obtain the necessary forms. 

 

FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT 

Employees have the option of enrolling in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA).   This benefit allows employees to have income withheld from their paychecks before taxes for reimbursement of certain medical and childcare expenses.  Our current plan year is July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.      

 

SICK LEAVE BANK

This benefit is for full-time employees who have a prolonged, catastrophic or long-term illness or injury and who have exhausted their own sick leave.  Membership is voluntary and to join an employee must make a one-time donation of two days of sick leave.  See policy GCBD-R in Richmond County Policy Manual.  Hybrid employees are not eligible to join the Sick Leave Bank.    

Legacy employees who do not wish to participate in the Sick Leave Bank must submit a waiver form to the central office.    

 

VEA DUES 

Employees can opt to be a member of the Virginia Education Association (VEA) and have a monthly payroll deduction for the cost.

GENERAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION 

  • Personal Information – please check your monthly paycheck stub or transmittal to make sure your mailing address is correct.  If you make a change to your personal information (name, address, phone number, marital status) you can change yourself online in ESS (Employee Self Serve) https://richmond-breeze.secure.openrda.net/revmgt/login and in Absence Management (AESOP) https://login.frontlineeducation.com/login?signin=1f724be30364b64233d82ad03d25d716&productId=ABSMGMT&clientId=ABSMGMT#/login
     
  • Tax forms and direct deposit forms are available on the website.
     
  • Sick/Personal Leave – these balances appear each month on your pay transmittal as well as in the Absence Management System.  The earned leave is given at the beginning of the school year and the balance is adjusted as time is taken throughout the year.  Please check this each month and let the School Board Office know if you have any questions.    The Richmond County School Board Policy Manual explains each classification of leave. 
     
  • Accidents- if you should have an accident while at work, notify your supervisor at once.  Your supervisor will assist you in calling the Company Nurse Injury Hotline and receive instructions for additional care.  In order for your medical expenses to be covered under Richmond County Schools’ workers’ compensation policy, you must go through these steps.
