Retiree Benefits

Excerpt from: University of Delaware Policies and Procedures Manual, Section: Personnel

Employees who wish to retire should contact the Office of Human Resources at least three months in advance of their retirement date. Staff will assist in explaining entitlements, filing applications and coordinating required documents.

  • Prior Service

    The University will include prior employment for purposes of meeting retirement eligibility providing the length of service is five years or more. Prior University service of less than five years will be restored only after the individual works for a minimum of five consecutive years. However, where a break in service is four months or less, the 5-year service requirement will be waived and all eligible prior service will be restored. Only permanent employment of 50% time or more as a faculty, professional, salaried or hourly staff employee will be considered.

    Note: Upon retirement, individuals receive payment for unused vacation.
