If I’m 62 or older, can I continue to work in the UM System (UM) after retirement?

If you are at least age 62 at retirement, you may be eligible to return to work after retirement. Please note:

  • You must complete all the necessary paperwork to apply for and initiate your retirement.
  • You may only return to work on a part-time basis. In other words, you may work at less than 75% full-time equivalency (FTE) at department and University discretion.
  • The “less than 75% FTE” threshold is measured by including all appointments you may hold at any given time.
  • The decision of whether you will be offered continued employment is at the discretion of the department and the University.
