VRSI's Mission:

At VRSI we understand that individuals face unique challenges as they prepare for retirement. We can help take the mystery out of preparing for today and tomorrow. Whether your goal is preparing for retirement, college savings, or legacy planning, our personalized service focuses on your needs, wants, and financial goals and objectives.

We are in no way affiliated with the Virginia Retirement System, but we do specialize in the benefits available to you under the VRS and provide programs that are designed, not to replace the benefits that you currently qualify for, but are designed to supplement and enhance those benefits.

Many retirees, even those with 30 or more years of service, find that their retirement income is far from adequate - often less than 50% of their final salary. Most people spend more time planning a two-week vacation than in planning for a thirty year retirement. A few minutes of appropriate retirement planning can help avoid some retirement mistakes.

Please explore our entire VRSI website to find out more about us - our history, our VRSI team, and what we do. Our website is filled with educational videos, articles, slideshows, and calculators designed to help you learn more.
