Planning for Retirement?
Please refer to the Retirement Health Benefits Booklet for a wealth of information on what benefits are available in retirement.
Employees who have submitted a resignation for retirement to the Department of Human Resources will receive an email from the Benefit Office with materials on how to process benefits into retirement. This email is typically delivered 30 days prior to the employee's retirement date if the employee has submitted a Voluntary Notice of Retirement to the Human Resources office. Employees who have submitted a PARS packet do not need to submit a separate voluntary notice of retirement to Human Resources. In addition, below is a power point presentation which summarizes this process.
