Faculty Retirement Planning Workshops 2022

UCLA Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Personnel

January 10, 2022

Dear Colleagues:

In my fall quarter letter to you I indicated the many possibilities and opportunities available to Emeriti faculty, such as mentoring, teaching, serving as PI on a research grant and maintaining an active research program, chairing a dissertation committee and serving on Academic Senate committees.

My letter also mentioned our retirement planning workshops, Path Forward: Planning for Retirement and Active Engagement as Emeriti. All Senate faculty are welcome to participate. Whether you intend to retire this academic year, or in the near future, I urge you to attend.

The Path Forward Workshop series will be offered on two consecutive Friday mornings, February 18 and February 25, in a Zoom Meeting Format.

  • Session I:  Navigating the Path toward Retirement, Friday, February 18, 2022

This workshop begins with an overview of ensuring that your emeritus/a years will be both secure and professionally satisfying. Topics include understanding your rights and privileges as an emeritus/a professor, negotiating a Pathways to Retirement agreement that sets out your plans for up to two years prior to retirement and three years following, and coordinating your departmental agreement with UC retirement benefits and other retirement resources. Then a representative from UC/Fidelity Services will discuss financial planning and management in your retirement years.  The formal program will conclude at approximately 11:30 a.m., at which time Q and A will be available.
