UC President Proposes New Retirement Program for Future Employees

March 16, 2016

As part of a broader effort to maintain UC’s excellence and sustain its long-term financial health, University of California President Janet Napolitano is proposing a new retirement program for employees hired on or after July 1, 2016.

Napolitano announced the new program in a letter to faculty and staff members distributed March 11.

Current employees and retirees are unaffected by these changes as accrued pension benefits are protected by law and cannot be reduced or revoked.

More details about the proposal are posted online, including a list of frequently asked questions and background information.
