Faculty Retirement Information
Last updated June 2016
When are you eligible to retire?
The Benefits office has a tool called a Retirement Health Benefits Estimator that calculates the earliest month and year during which you’ll be eligible to retire from the university with health benefits.
If your earliest eligibility date is sooner than 2021, you’ll see several years listed and what the university contribution will be for you and your dependents depending on when you retire.
The UM Benefits web site is an excellent resource to learn more about retirement and provides a comprehensive collection of retirement related information and materials.
