Post-Employment Benefits

Read the Proposals

After more than a year of study, consultation and discussion, the Post-Employment Benefits Task Force has presented its recommendations for pension and retiree health benefit changes to University of California President Mark Yudof.

The task force made the following recommendations:

  • Increase employer and employee contributions to the UC Retirement Plan (UCRP) to 10 and 5 percent, respectively, by July 2012.
  • Add a new UCRP pension tier for employees who join UC after July 2013. Several options are proposed, but all raise the minimum retirement age from 50 to 55 and require faculty and staff to work longer to receive the maximum pension benefit.
  • Change eligibility rules for retiree health benefits.
  • Reduce, over time, UC contributions to retiree health insurance premiums to 70 percent of the cost.
