Benefits for Retirees

An employee is eligible for full retirement benefits when they have attained the age of 59.5 and have a minimum of ten consecutive years of full-time, benefits eligible service immediately before retiring. The eligibility for benefits recognizes the retiree's contributions to the University and encourages the individual to maintain their connection to the W&L community.

Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) Plan

Funds that are used for reimbursement of premiums paid for by Medicare Supplement Plans, Medicare Part D prescription drug premiums, Medicare Part B premiums, and other medical expenses that are incurred in retirement.

Educational Grants at Retirement or Disability

If an employee has worked full-time for six or more consecutive years immediately preceding his/her retirement (as defined above), the employee's children will remain eligible for the educational grant benefit.

If an employee has worked full-time for six or more consecutive years immediately preceding his/her separation due to disability, the employee's children will remain eligible for the educational grant benefit provided that the disabled employee continues to meet the disability definition under the University's long term disability program.
