Voluntary Retirement Incentive (VRI)

The Department of Administration is offering a Voluntary Retirement Incentive payment to state employees in the Executive Branch who participate in the Employees’ Retirement System of Rhode Island (ERSRI), are currently eligible to retire on or before December 31, 2017, and are the recipients of longevity payments under the state’s longevity program. Please see the VRI plan document and FAQ for details on the recently introduced VRI program.

If you are considering retiring under the VRI, please note your retiree health benefits will not be affected by the incentive and the rules governing those benefits remain the same. To learn more about State-sponsored retiree health coverage, please visit the Retiree Benefits page and attend a monthly informational meeting; additional sessions have been added.
