Save 300 million a year by raising the vrs age to 65 and offering HC plans similar to silver level ACA.The private sector workers don't get to retire at age 55 why should state workers?

Miriam Sullivan writes:

I want VRS retirement age raised to 63 years old which is more comparable to private sector. VRS healthcare deductibles need to also be increased by at least $250 to be more in line with private sector healthcare plans!

Charles McAndrew writes:

Raise the retirement age to 65 for those folks under 50 years of age. Concentrate on resolving the massive unfunded pension liability.
