Retirement Transition

The Retirement Transition Program is a phased-in approach to full retirement status designed to recognize and reward long and successful university service while continuing to utilize the skills of employees approaching retirement. Because this program is intended to provide a transition to retirement, it is available for a maximum of three consecutive years. Once approved, this election is not revocable. The employee is required to retire by the end of the retirement transition period.
