Transitioning into retirement does not mean losing the work, life and community connections made during your career. Retirees Associations are available at each UM System university, and they advocate for their retiree communities and actively contribute to the welfare of their institutions. Select your university below to learn more about the affiliated retirees association.

Stay In Touch
The University of Missouri allows retirees to set a retiree email address in myHR (PDF) in order to receive official communications from the university at the email address of their choosing.
You can also authorize the university to share your contact information with your campus retiree association if you choose. Click “UM Employee Data” and check the box to opt in.
Pension Plan Funding Performance
The university's pension plan (the Retirement, Disability and Death Benefit Plan, referred to as "the Plan") is in good health. Members of the Defined Benefit Plan (DB Plan) and Hybrid Plan, who have a pension benefit under the Plan, can count on receiving the benefits they’ve earned. Visit the Pension Plan Funding Performance webpage to learn more.
The university takes its fiduciary responsibility very seriously and will never waiver from that commitment.
