Retirement Strategy/Benefits


Benefits in Retirement

If you are retiring you may want to consider paying for retirement benefits. You have 31 days to apply, otherwise you will not be eligible. For more details, please see the Retiree Benefits Program booklet by the College Employer Council.

Also, please read the following Benefits Myth Buster by your OPSEU representatives.

***Please note this strategy applies for those faculty members on Fall/Winter rotation only. If you are on a different rotation please contact your union steward for more information.***
