Important Notice about Contacting OHR

Due to the high volume of inquiries received related to the faculty and staff early retirement programs (FRIP and SERP) and retiree benefits, there may be delays in response time.

If you have already submitted an inquiry, we ask that you please do not submit duplicate requests, as doing so may result in slower response times. Inquiries will be responded to as soon as possible; we appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

For All General Inquiries
