Planning for Retirement

The University offers a retirement plan that is designed to help employees ensure that their "Golden Years" live up to the name, by providing a solid financial foundation and lots of flexibility so employees can make their own decisions about their investments. In addition to a generous defined benefit pension plan which provides retirement income based on age, years of service, and salary level at time of retirement the University also offers employees an impressive array of additional first-rate investment products designed to help employees achieve their goals for future financial security. These include:

  • Defined Contribution Plan (both pre-tax and after-tax accounts)
  • Tax-Deferred 403(b) Plan
