Task Force on Retirement Benefits

President Judith Rodin and Provost Robert Barchi have formed a Task Force on Retiree Health Benefits and TDAs responding to the recommendations made in the May 2002 report of the Task Force on Faculty Retirement (Almanac September 10, 2002) that these issues be periodically reviewed as circumstances warra nt. The rising cost of health insurance and the increasing age at which many Americans leave the work force have driven up costs significantly, causing many major companies to amend their health insurance and pension plans. 

Members of the Task Force have been asked to consider how University contributions to the health insurance and TDA programs might be modified without compromising the University's ability to attract and retain excellent faculty and staff.

Dr. Olivia Mitchell, International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans Professor in the Wharton School, is chairing the Task Force which has begun meeting and expects to conclude its work in the fall semester.

The other task force members are:

Eric Bradlow, Wharton
