Instructional Faculty and Administrators are also required to participate in a retirement plan as a condition of employment but have a choice between VRS and the Optional Retirement Plan (ORP). Instructional Faculty and Administrators must make the retirement election within the first 60 calendar days of eligible employment. Instructional Faculty and Administrators who do not elect the ORP within the initial 60-day election period become members of the Virginia Retirement System.
