Retirement Information: Planning Your Retirement from IUP

  • Important: There are different eligibility criteria for the full (non-reduced) retirement benefit (SERS and PSERS members), for the majority paid health and prescription drug coverage after retirement (the plan includes coverage for both Medicare eligible and non-Medicare eligible retirees and their dependents), and for receiving a payout of unused sick leave.

    If you are considering retirement, you are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of Human Resources at (724) 357-2431 to verify your eligibility for these benefits before you submit your letter of retirement and/or before you sign your retirement paperwork with your retirement counselor.
