  • Access to University libraries, online resources, and facilities

  • Retirees and their spouses/partners may join the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute through a special membership rate for UR faculty and staff and retirees of $25 each per year
  • University employee discounts
  • Invitations to University events

Just because an employee meets the definition of retiree, they are not necessarily eligible to continue health insurance benefits. Some retirees may have additional benefits because they participate in programs, such as early retirement, or were hired prior to certain dates that determine eligibility.

The University retains sole discretion in determining the benefits made available under this section. Use of any of these benefits by the retiree is subject to the rules and regulations which govern the administration of the benefit.
