RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Retirement System director is getting a $50,000 bonus, which state officials said helps to make her salary more competitive.

The retirement systems recently told lawmakers that director Patricia Bishop is receiving a $50,000 tax-deferred supplement, bringing her total compensation to about $250,000.

The system’s board of trustees approved the bonus after considering that the average salary for similar officials in other states was about $245,000 in 2016.
