Phased Retirement

Staff Phased Retirement

Dear Colleague,

In 2014, we piloted a Phased Retirement program for managerial and professional employees. Phased Retirement supports staff members transitioning into retirement, while allowing departments the ability to transition roles, responsibilities, and knowledge in a thoughtful manner. Based upon department and participant feedback we have made improvements and now will offer Phased Retirement as an ongoing program.

Generally, the Plan provides eligible staff a reduced work schedule over the course of two years, while maintaining benefit eligibility and providing a salary supplement.

At Yale, we offer an array of alternative work options and will continue to look for ways to enhance workplace flexibility. I encourage you to review the Phased Retirement materials and if you have any questions or interest in the program please speak with the Employee Service Center or your Manager, Human Resources Generalist or Lead Administrator.
