GERS Advises Members of Delay in Annuity Checks; Direct Deposit Not Affected

The Government Employees Retirement System (GERS) advises its retirees there will be a delay in payment for those who receive their annuity payment via check. Retirees who receive their payment via ACH/Direct Deposit should not experience a delay.

The delay is due to technical difficulties currently being experienced with the check processing system, which will also prevent any retiree from accessing their check stubs online via www.usvigers.com.

Note: retirees who requested changes to become effective March 30 will not see those changes until pay date April 12.

GERS appreciates members’ understanding as it works diligently to get this matter rectified as soon as possible. If there are any questions, call 776-7703.
