Not Participating in IMRF’s Voluntary Additional Contributions (VAC) Program Yet?Here’s What VAC Can Do For You
The no-risk, high interest rate of VAC make it a unique and highly effective savings opportunity available to IMRF members only, to help supplement your retirement savings. The compounding interest can help your money grow more substantially than with most other savings options.

VAC participants recently received their 2021 interest, which was 7.25% of their 2021 start-of-the-year balance. To learn more about what Voluntary Additional Contributions can do for you, click here.
