Proposed Changes to the UC Retirement Plan
This morning the Chancellor passed on a message from UCOP announcing that President Yudof has published some of the recommendations that are expected to come out of the Post Employment Benefits (PEB) Task Force regarding the future of UC retirement benefits. A detailed article addressing this letter was just published this morning on UCSF Today. To read this letter and view the article, please go to UC to Consider Proposed Changes to UC Retirement Benefits.
There will be significant communication coming from the Office of The President regarding the recommended changes so please stay tuned to The Future of the UC Retirement Plan and At Your Service (AYS) and ensure faculty and staff you support have access to this information.
Also please save the date for a ‘Virtual’ Town Hall on Post Employment Benefits: September 29, 2 p.m. This will be a live webcast addressing the final recommendations, and employees will have the option to submit questions in real time and get answers.
