Planning My RF Retirement

On this page:

Planning for retirement today will help you meet your retirement goals for tomorrow. Whether your retirement is years away or just around the corner, it's never too early, or too late, to start planning and saving for your retirement. 

Are You Eligible To Retire?

To be eligible for retirement from the Research Foundation (RF), you must meet the criteria to continue health insurance as a retiree. You must:

  • Be at least age 55
  • Have completed a minimum of 10 years of full-time service or the equivalent.  (e.g., a person working 50 percent with 20 years of service would qualify)
  • Be enrolled in the RF Health Care plan at the time of retirement
  • Be continuously employed by the RF during the one-year period immediately prior to retirement
  • Enroll in Original Medicare Parts A and B when you reach age 65, but not part D

Your spouse or domestic partner must be insured for one full year prior to retirement to be eligible.
