HOW DO I CALCULATE MY BENEFIT?

Retirement should be a time to enjoy the rewards of your hard work and savings, but it takes planning and preparation. Whether you are just beginning, ready to retire, or somewhere in the middle…help is available. Start by calculating what amount you might receive from your retirement plan and deferred compensation contributions.

HOW DO I ENROLL IN:

HOW DO I RETIRE?

Retirement is a new beginning; a new phase and threshold of your life where you can catch up on all that you missed.  If you are planning to retire within the next year you will want to contact  your campus HR office or the Benefits & Retirement office to request a personal counseling session about your benefits and what to expect.  There are many steps you need to take to retire from the University of Tennessee. This list may help in this process.

HOW DO I UPDATE MY:

When you have a life changing event you may need to contact and change your information with several benefit plans.  For example, if your life qualifying event is that you recently married, several things you need to consider changing are: 1. Your Name or address, with UT, your retirement plan, your deferred compensation plan, your insurance plans.  2.Your Beneficiary/ies, with UT, your retirement plan, your deferred compensation plan, your insurance plans. 3. Adding coverage for your new spouse or dependents with your insurance plans.
