5.3 Retirement

Handbook Pages

The University offers a generous medical insurance program for Faculty members who retire and meet the program’s eligibility requirements. Eligibility is based on your age, the date you were hired, plus the number of eligible years of service you accrue. You should contact Stanford Benefits in order to determine your personal eligibility. Faculty members who retire in the fall quarter of the academic year will not receive a salary increase for that academic year.
Faculty members who become official University retirees receive the emeritus or emerita title authorized by the Board of Trustees, and Academic Council members become Senior Members of the Academic Council with privileges of the floor and of service on committees, but without the right to vote or hold office. Emeriti may retain a campus home, retain Faculty Club membership, and receive free campus parking privileges. Eligible emeriti may also use the Tuition Grant Plan for any eligible children.
