Hybrid Disability

VACORP worked with OneDigital to create the VACORP Hybrid Disability Program. This program has been administered by the Standard since inception in January 2014. Effective July 1, 2019, Anthem will begin the program administration. We are proud to offer this program for VRS Hybrid Retirement Plan employees. Our goal is to provide the state-required benefits with stable pricing. With the large number of program participants and with Anthem as program administrator, we believe this goal will be met. In fact, program pricing will be reduced on July 1 and these rates are guaranteed through June 30, 2024.

VACORP Hybrid Disability program was established in response to state legislation creating the VRS Hybrid Retirement Plan. Governing bodies that made an irrevocable election to opt out of the state’s Virginia Local Disability Program are required to provide a comparable plan of employer-paid long-term and short-term disability insurance for employees participating in the Hybrid Plan, with the short-term disability period self-insured. All political subdivisions that participate in VRS are eligible for the VACORP program.

If your agency participates in the VACORP Hybrid Disability Program, thank you for your confidence and participation. We are happy to work with you.
