The Bridge to Retirement Plan [pdf] is available to all tenured faculty members who are at least 55 years of age, and have at least 10 years of full-time College service. The plan is voluntary and is initiated by the faculty member. The plan was designed to provide 1-3 years at a reduced teaching load in order to prepare for full retirement.
An employee may be eligible for certain retiree benefits from St. John Fisher College after 10 years of full-time employment, if years of service plus age equal at least 65. Please use this link for more information on Retiree Benefits [pdf], including health insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, and tuition remission.
