An employee may bring about the termination of his or her employment through retirement. As stated in the Faculty-Staff Handbook, Section 3730, C, it is "...considered to be retirement if the employee has qualified for certain benefits based on age and length of qualified service."
If you think you may qualify for the UI Retiree Health Plan benefits upon retirement, please complete the University Retirement Tier Request and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Confirmation of your tier will help you set a retirement date.
Academic Faculty on Spread Pay
When contemplating a retirement date, you will need to take into consideration spread pay issues if the retirement date is not the end of the contract year (June).
Planned Retirement Program
The University of Idaho developed a program to enable employees and their departments to plan for the employee's retirement more coherently. The plan encourages and allows faculty and staff members who meet established requirements to pursue other opportunities earlier in their lives rather than later.
