    I just got the ‘Team Fairfax Insider’ and I am MAJORLY confused. I will have 37 years on 4/1 but am one of the ‘hybrid’ Health Dept employees. Will I be eligible for a longevity award of 4%? Needless to say when I hit my 25 year mark we werein one of the inumerable pay freezes we have his since I started with the County. Also how does my salary relate to the actual S scale as I now must contribute to VRS however the County is picking that up.
    Call me confused.
