Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is a safe and easy way to have your pension payment deposited directly into an account at your financial institution each pay date.

To sign up for direct deposit or if you are moving your account to another financial institution, please complete the Direct Deposit Authorization form and return it to the Richmond Retirement System (RRS) with a voided check. Direct deposit is available at any financial institution.

Retirees and beneficiaries participating in direct deposit will receive a check advice each time a change is made to their pension benefit amount.

Checks are mailed on the last working day of the month. Please be advised that significant delays may occur for those without direct deposit.

More information about the RRS’s direct deposit policy can be obtained by accessing the Direct Deposit Fact Sheet.

Lost or Stolen Check Policy

If the need arises to reissue your pension payment as a result of a lost or stolen check, the member assumes the responsibility of having to wait at least 15 to 20 days to receive a replacement check.

Checks cannot be reported lost or stolen until after the 10th business day the check was issued. To report a check lost or stolen after the 10th business day, please return a completed Stop Payment Form to the Richmond Retirement System.

After two replacement checks have been issued in any 12-month period, a retiree must sign up for direct deposit.
