Benefits » Retirement



INPRS - Effective July 1, 2011, in accordance with Indiana law, the Indiana Public Retirement System (INPRS) is established. INPRS will administer and manage TRF, PERF, as well as other public employee funds. Each of the funds remained separate and are administered by the nine-member board of trustees of INPRS. INPRS Website:

TRF - The Teachers Retirement Fund was created by the Indiana General Assembly in 1921. Since its establishment, the laws governing the administration of TRF have changed and expanded to respond to the needs of its members. 
PERF - The Public Employees' Retirement Fund was created on July 1, 1945, to provide secure, long-term pension benefits for Hoosiers who choose careers in public service. 

VCS Educators:
The contractual date to submit a retirement letter is March 1.

Your benefit accrual date is generally your last day at work. You will receive a prorated payment for that month. Your retirement date is the first of the month following your benefit accrual date or any future month requested in writing by the member. For example, if your last day of work is May 15, your retirement date would be June 1.
