 Retirement Benefits
 The College has no mandatory retirement age. If you are anticipating retirement, you should give three to four months written notice to your department head and schedule an appointment with the Office of Human Resources.
 Although the standard retirement age is 65, you may retire at an earlier or later age and elect income options through the College's retirement plan (if enrolled). Note: tax-deferred dollars withdrawn prior to age 59 ½ may incur taxes and early-withdrawal penalties.
 If you retire with at least 15 years of continuous service to the College and have reached 60 years of age, you are entitled to:
  • a permanent identification card to continue your campus privileges,
  • remain listed in the College directory,
  • be eligible for enrollment in one course per year with tuition remission, and
  • use of College facilities.
 If you wish to receive selected College publications, contact College Relations.
 Employees who retire at age 60 or older with at least 20 years of continuous benefits-eligible service at the College will also be eligible for continuation of the College Health benefits. The retiree, and/or eligible dependent spouse, may continue group health benefits at an employee/college shared premium cost. Employees and/or an eligible dependent spouse under the age of 65 may continue coverage through the College group plan for the active employees and upon reaching age 65 will be transferred to the Medicare Supplemental health plan. Retired employees and dependents must apply for Medicare coverage upon reaching age 65.
