19.C Retirement Eligibility

There is no compulsory retirement age.
Retirement eligibility criteria for faculty

In a February 2011 memo to all University faculty and staff, the University announced the adoption of changes in future health benefits for retirees. These changes were into effect on January 1, 2013. As soon as faculty members begin their University appointment(s), they have access through Wolverine Access (via the U-M homepage) to their estimated retirement eligibility dates. These estimated dates and contribution percentages are personalized and calculated automatically based on eligibility rules and data from service records for each individual, including age, service date, and years of service.
