GERS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF THE 2018 ANNUAL BENEFIT STATEMENT FOR TIER I MEMBERS

(Tuesday, February 26, 2019)
GERS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF THE 2018 ANNUAL BENEFIT STATEMENT FOR TIER I MEMBERS.



The Government Employees’ Retirement System is pleased to announce that the Annual Benefit Statements as of December 31, 2018, are now available for Tier I members and may be accessed by logging into your Member Self Service Account.

The Benefits Statement is a document produced annually which provides an estimated value of your pension at your retirement age. It also details the employer and employee contributions paid and what was expected to be paid based on your years of service and employment history.

To access your Statement, visit the GERS website at  www.usvigers.com;  go to Self Service Login and click on “Member” on top of the homepage and log in using your username and password.  If you are not registered, click the Register button on the Login Screen to begin creating your Account profile.  Once inside your account, click on “Review Your Documents History”. There you will be able to view or download your Statement. As a note to self, be sure to keep your registration information in a secure place for future reference.

It is important to note that your statement is only an estimate and is not a guaranteed statement of entitlement. Before making any decisions about your retirement, consult with one of our Benefits Analyst.  Also, should any information appear inaccurate (i.e.: date of birth, start date, or if a NOPA is missing), kindly forward your information to your HR Office, who will assist in transmitting the correct information to the GERS. 

For step by step instructions on how to log in, visit our YouTube Channel at Government Employees’ Retirement System of the US Virgin Islands to view our Member Self Service Instructional Video.

 

Note that Tier II Benefit Statements are not available at this time; however, every effort is being made to make this a reality.  A subsequent press release will be issued to advise when those Statements are available.

In the meantime, thank you for your patience and understanding.  We look forward to serving you.
