Retiree Resources

For prospective retirees at Rutgers, The RFSA stands as a resource to help ease the transition into retirement, not just for the retiring faculty or staff member, but also for the university. On these pages, you will find a number of resources available to help make the transition into retirement a smooth one:

  • Preparing for Retirement — a comprehensive page, maintained by Rutgers University Human Resources (UHR) with valuable information for prospective retirees.
  • Calculating a Staff Retiree’s Last Day — When a staff employee applies for retirement, Rutgers University policy requires that the employee take all unused and accrued vacation days, administrative leave (AL) days and personal holidays (PH) prior to the effective date of retirement.

  • Retirement Checklist — After years of working at Rutgers, it may be hard to keep track of the number of tasks you have to do heading up to, and just prior to, retirement. This handy generic checklist, in Web and downloadable Adobe .pdf format, will help you keep your tasks straight and pave the way for a smooth transition to retirement.
