The Retirement Checklist can help!

People are living longer than ever. Advances in medicine & technology are not only helping us live longer, but live better as well. A healthy and happy retirement requires careful planning. At the U of R, we are committed to supporting you through this process and beyond.

Retirement. Ever. Better.

The Office of Total Rewards presents The Retiree Spotlight! Staying connected to our University of Rochester retirees is important to us. To show how much we appreciate them and their years of dedication to the University, we’ve given our retirees the opportunity to tell us who they are, how long they’ve been with the University of Rochester and what they are up to now. We thank you for your hard work and years of dedication!
