Reminder: Retirement Incentive Option (RIO) and Voluntary Early Retirement Authority (VERA) Deadline May 15

| Leave a comment

In February, the University approved RIO, an opportunity for voluntary retirement for eligible employees.  In April, Extension also received approval to offer VERA to coincide with RIO.  In order to take advantage of both programs, eligible employees must submit their intent to retire by May 15.

For more information about RIO, visit the University RIO website

If you have additional questions about RIO, contact the Benefits Service Team at 612-624-9090 or 800-756-2363, option 2 or send an email to benefits@umn.edu.  For questions about VERA, contact Leslee Mason, human resources director, or Kathy Murphy, federal benefits counselor.
