Retirees

Syracuse University is a progressive employer, focused on making improvements to work life by providing its faculty and staff with a benefits program responsive both to the diversity of its community and to the many life changes individuals experience during their tenure.

In order to receive retiree benefits you must meet the following eligibility requirements (among others):

  • If hired before January 1, 2003, you must be at least age 55 and have at least one consecutive year of service as a “Regular” employee through retirement.
  • If hired after January 1, 2003, you must be at least age 55 and have at least five consecutive years of service as a “Regular” employee through retirement.
