Road to Retirement-Part II

Dear PASEF and ASEF-PSOM Members:

Please join us for Part II of our annual “Road to Retirement” series on Thursday, April 21, 2016, from 3:30-5:00 p.m. in the Class of ’55 Room on the second floor of the Van Pelt-Dietrich library.

This session offers expert advice about the practical nuts-and-bolts aspects of the transition to retirement, such as phased retirement options, the Faculty Income Allowance Program (FIAP), pre-retirement sabbaticals, health and other benefits for eligible retirees and their families, emeritus status, and the rights and privileges of retired faculty. It will be informative both for those who are contemplating retirement and for those who have already chosen retirement.

The speakers will be Hilary Lopez, Senior Benefits Specialist in the University's Human Resources office, and Victoria Mulhern, Executive Director of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development in the Perelman School of Medicine. They will review options related to retirement, and also note recent changes.

A wine and cheese reception after the program will give you an opportunity for informal conversation with other Penn colleagues, both retired and active.

Although no reservation is required, if you expect to attend, we would appreciate your letting us know so we can have the appropriate quantity of seats and refreshments. You can RSVP by replying to this email. For further information, please contact Jocelyne Waller at or 215-746-5972.
