Retirement is a deeply personal decision, one that requires thoughtful consideration not only of your financial situation but also how it will affect daily life in a beloved profession. For some, retirement means more time for continued scholarship without administrative obligations; for others, it means more time for personal pursuits. Whatever your plans and goals, we want to reduce the uncertainty surrounding retirement by providing planning assistance and resources for continued academic engagement after retirement, if that is your preference.
On these pages we provide detailed information about the University’s recently enhanced Faculty Phased Retirement Plan that allows tenured faculty members 65 to 70 years old (other than those associated with the Yale School of Medicine and School of Public Health) to phase down their teaching and service responsibilities for up to three years. For faculty who will be 70 or older by August 31, 2011, this plan also has a one-time enrollment opportunity between now and August 31, 2011.
If you are interested in learning more about retirement at Yale, please contact your chair, dean, deputy provost, or Deputy Provost for Faculty Development Frances Rosenbluth. They can advise you on the timing of your decision and provide answers to questions about the resources available to maintain academic involvement. To help you explore your benefit options, please consult with a Faculty Retirement and Benefits Counselor in our Human Resources Department at (203) 436-5193.
