2013 Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program for Faculty & Coaches

A Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program (VRIP) is being offered to faculty and non-faculty athletic coaches. Eligibility for participation in the program will be based on age and years of service. The Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program acceptance period begins March 1, 2013, and continues through March 29, 2013, for faculty and through April 26, 2013, for non-faculty coaches. Participating faculty must retire May 31, 2013. Participating non-faculty athletic coaches must retire June 28, 2013.

This is not an early retirement incentive program. To be eligible, you must be at least 60 years of age or have 35 years of service, and be eligible for majority paid annuitant health care coverage as of May 31, 2013, for faculty, or as of June 28, 2013, for non-faculty athletic coaches.

To be considered for this program, faculty members must hand-deliver an Intent to Retire Notice to Jessica Kornhausl in the Office of Human Resources, Reibman Administration Building, no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 29, 2013. Coaches must hand-deliver an Intent to Retire Notice by April 5, 2013. The Intent to Retirement Notice is not an official notice of retirement and, therefore, is not final and binding.
