Education Benefits for Disabled and Retired Employees

Retired employees and employees out on longterm disability who, at the time disability began or at the time of retirement, had been continuously employed by the University for three (3) years shall receive the tuition remission benefits for themselves and eligible family members that they would have had if the employee had not become disabled or retired.

In the event of an employee's death, the surviving spouse/same-sex domestic partner who does not remarry and the eligible children of a deceased full-time employee, who at the time of death had been continuously employed by the University for at least three (3) years, shall receive the tuition remission benefits which would have been theirs had the employee not died.

The words "tuition remission benefits that would have been theirs" reference the tuition benefits available at the time application for such benefits is made, not the tuition remission benefits in effect at the time of death, disability, or retirement.
