One-Time Voluntary Retirement Incentive Opportunity for Faculty and Staff in 2013-2014
The University is offering a one-time voluntary retirement incentive opportunity for regular full-time and regular part-time faculty and staff members who meet certain criteria and choose to retire on May 31, 2014 in accordance with the 2013-14 Voluntary Retirement Incentive Plan for Faculty or the 2013-14 Voluntary Retirement Incentive Plan for Staff.
Eligible faculty and staff can voluntarily elect to participate in the plans during an election period beginning on Monday, Nov. 18, and ending on Monday, Feb. 3, 2014. Retirement must occur on May 31, 2014. Participants who meet all plan requirements will receive an incentive payment, payable in a lump sum or in equal bi-weekly installments, equal to one year of the participant’s annual base pay. Participants who met the university’s eligibility criteria for its full benefits package (those who are a minimum 0.625 FTE) on November 1, 2013, also will receive a benefits subsidy in the amount of $7,250, which is the equivalent of one year’s continuation of employee-only health insurance coverage under COBRA.
Additional information including plan documents and forms are available on the Voluntary Retirement Incentive webpage.
