Please be aware that Adjunct CUNY employees, teaching or non-teaching, are not eligible for Retiree Health Insurance benefits under the NYC Health Benefits Program or the PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund.
How do I get ready to retire?
Many of your questions must be directed to CUNY HR, the Teachers Retirement System or TIAA. Here's a list of those questions and who to contact.
For information on the retirement process, begin with the Benefits Office at your campus or workplace. CUNY holds pre-retirement information seminars throughout the year. Your benefits officer will have the dates.
If you have a TIAA retirement account, meet with the TIAA representative on your campus.
Take a look at the Thinking of Retiring Checklist:
- One to two years before your expected retirement date, meet with Human Resources at your college and with the Welfare Fund Retirement Counselor.
- If you are 65 or older, apply for Medicare Part B three months before your retirement date. Doing so will help ensure Medicare becomes your primary insurance at the time of your retirement.
- To continue your NYSUT member benefits and to stay active with the PSC, update your status with the PSC membership department and join the Retirees Chapter.
