It’s easier than ever for VRS members to manage their accounts and benefits with myVRS. From one secure location, they can readily view account information and easily maintain certain information.

Skip the Paper Forms!

Clicking “submit” online takes less time than hunting for an envelope and a stamp. That’s the convenience offered by myVRS. Plus, your record is updated as soon as you hit submit.

Beneficiary Management: Members and retirees can update beneficiaries for their VRS defined benefit member account as well as group and optional life insurance benefits. Members with defined contribution accounts will continue to update beneficiaries directly through their defined contribution account record keeper.

Optional Group Life Insurance Maintenance: Eligible members and retirees can maintain their Optional Group Life Insurance program benefit online by choosing Life Insurance under the My History tab and then selecting the Visit Securian button. On the Securian site, members can buy additional coverage or choose coverage for a spouse and dependent children. Once enrolled, members can increase, decrease or cancel coverage online. Retirees who carry the benefit into retirement can use myVRS to reduce or cancel optional coverage if desired.

Payment Destination Maintenance: Retirees can set up direct deposit or notify VRS when they change financial institutions or bank accounts and need to redirect their monthly benefit payment.

Health Insurance Credit Maintenance: Retirees eligible for the health insurance credit can claim the credit, report insurance premium changes or make other adjustments.

Accessing Survivor Benefits: Members or retirees who are receiving survivor benefits based on another VRS member’s account have access to view their survivor benefits using their personal myVRS account.
