Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the temporary stoppage of in-person retiree sessions, please find information and various links to assist you if you are planning on retiring from the University at this time.
- Steps Toward Retirement Checklist: It is recommended that you begin the retirement process at a minimum of three (3) months prior to your retirement date. The Steps Toward Retirement Checklist will assist you in your planning.
- On-demand retiree information session: Review the recorded retiree information session for basic information about retiring from the University and related benefits. (The session slidedeck is also available.)
- Medicare: You should apply for Medicare Part A online once you reach age 65 while you are working, as it is at no-cost to you. Medicare Part B is not required while you are actively working and have health coverage.
- As part of the retirement process, 1-2 months prior to your retirement date, the Benefits Department will provide you with an employer verification form that should be mailed in with your Medicare Part B application to your local social security office. For more information, visit www.socialsecurity.gov or www.medicare.gov.
