Retirement: Academic Staff

Retirement Options

A staff member governed by the Faculty, FSO, APO or Librarian Agreements may apply for either a Phased Pre-Retirement Period of Employment or a Phased Post-Retirement Period of Employment. Please Refer to Retirement Options for Continuing Academic Staff for more information. A summary of benefit coverage associated with each option is listed below:

Post-Retirement Benefit Options

Your benefits coverage including supplementary health and dental care and life, disability, and other insurances, etc. end with retirement. Review the retirement rules surrounding your benefits coverage at Ending Employment: Academic Staff.

Review the plans identified by the Academic Benefits Review Task Force as providing competitive level of benefits coverage with competitive cost, member flexibility as some plans do not require medical evidence of insurability, and levels of coverage to help best fit individual needs.

Note: Alberta Health Services will contact you within 6 months prior to your 65th birthday regarding application for Alberta Blue Cross Senior's Benefits. Ensure Alberta Health Services has your up-to-date, current address.
