Does the ‘90-day break’ apply to employees under age 62 moving from one appointment to another?

The 90-day break in service requirement only applies when an employee under age 62 separates from the University and elects to take their retirement benefit. If an employee is simply moving from one appointment to another without electing to take their retirement benefit, there is no requirement for termination or a 90-day break in service. However, if an employee under age 62 elects to take a retirement benefit, then that employee must make a bona fide termination of employment and meet the 90-day break in service before moving to another appointment with the University.
