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.
If you have additional questions on retirement or eligibility, please contact the Benefits Department by calling 833-852-2210 or by submitting an inquiry online.
