IMRF Voluntary Additional Contribution Program

This program allows for IMRF contributors to put aside funds to be used for retirement or other purposes.  Funds are deducted through payroll after taxes and then held by IMRF.  Interest is credited to your account only once a year; however, funds put into this program are currently being paid interest at 7.25% (effective 1/1/2019).  You can elect to contribute up to 10% of your earnings. This is not to be seen as a short-term savings account as you can withdraw your contributions, but you must apply for a refund of all of your contributions when you do.  These funds can be applied to your monthly retirement annuity if your balance in the VAC program at the time of retirement is at least $4,500. You can enroll in the program or make changes to your contributions at any time by completing the IMRF VAC form below.
