Newport News Employees' Retirement Fund (NNERF) has a portability agreement with the Virginia Retirement System (VRS), Norfolk Retirement System (NRS), Roanoke Retirement System (RRS), and the Richmond Retirement System (RRS).
NNERF members who leave City employment and become covered by one of the plans above may port their service to the participating plan. Members have 18 months from their hire date to decide whether or not to transfer the assets. After this 18-month election period, members will lose their eligibility to port their service to their new plan. Members should contact their current employer to initiate a transfer.
As NNERF is a closed plan, assets may no longer be transferred into NNERF.
