This year, the Retirement Administration Agency reached a milestone with over 9,000 individuals receiving monthly benefits. Anticipating this growth, and faced with the ever-increasing need to trim expenses, we have, over the last several years, been looking for ways to streamline and modernize our practices.
For several years we have been using pension calculation software called PensionGold. We have also worked to enhance the Retirement Agency website, www.fairfaxcounty.gov/retirement. We have combined these two tools to provide you with on-line access to your pension information. We have been proceeding with a thorough educational process and are now ready to discontinue mailing paper pay advices.
Effective with your August benefit payment, the Retirement Agency
will no longer mail pay advices, since all the same information,
and more, is available through our secure website.
Thank you for your understanding in these difficult budget times. We look forward to serving you in the future.
