There is no longer a mandatory retirement age for faculty under provisions of PERS (Public Employee Retirement System). However, full-time faculty unit employees may retire upon completion of five years of service and after reaching age 50.
Pre-Retirement Reduction of Workload
Full-time faculty who have reached the age of 55 with ten years' service in the CSU (the last five in continuous full-time employment) may reduce their workload to 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 time during the five years immediately preceding retirement. Those participating in the reduction in workload program retain full retirement, health and other benefits normally provided full-time employees. Faculty interested in this program should submit a written request to the Academic Personnel Office (AD-102) at least six months in advance of the effective date of the reduction in workload.
Faculty not planning to return the following academic year should submit a letter of resignation to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and inform the department chair and college dean as soon as possible.
