(Board Policy 425.4; Universitywide Administrative Memorandum 430.1, 430.2; Fayetteville Policies and Procedures 412.0)

Since January 1, 1994, there has been no mandatory retirement age for any university employee. If you are planning to retire, you should discuss your intentions with your supervisor, as early as possible, so your department can prepare for the effects of your retirement. A number of benefits are available to retirees who meet eligibility criteria, including use of the University of Arkansas Libraries, waiver of fees for membership in the HPER facility, waiver of fees for enrollment in university courses on a space-available basis, faculty/staff admission to campus activities and events, a free parking permit, listing in the campus directory, free email and access to the Internet, continuation of discounts on men's athletics tickets, eligibility for retiree health insurance if the retiree meets the plan criteria, and a university identification card designating the retiree as a retired faculty or staff member.
