It's never too early to start planning for retirement.
Cornell provides many resources to help you plan – presentations, documents, and tools – each with a goal of clarifying your current benefits as well as your options in retirement. We understand that retirement is a major life transition, and our goal is to make the benefits portion of your transition easier to manage.
- Faculty: Refer to the Faculty Handbook.
Eligible faculty members and staff employees may request to reduce their job duties and scheduled hours prior to retirement, to make a gradual transition before their official retirement date. This process is a mutual agreement between the faculty member or staff employee and their department, and approval is based on the department's business need.
