Estimated retirement eligibility dates now available on Wolverine Access

Benefits-eligible faculty and staff can now view their estimated retirement eligibility dates through Wolverine Access on a new page in Self Service > Benefits.

This new feature can help faculty and staff plan for retirement and replaces the temporary Retirement Health Benefit Estimator that was available on the Benefits Office website.


More information

Read about changes to retirement eligibility rules announced in a Feb. 10 message to faculty and staff and in the Feb. 14 issue of the University Record.

The new page displays estimated retirement eligibility dates based on current eligibility rules. The page also shows how the retirement date and university contributions may change based on updates to the retirement eligibility rules that are going into effect on Jan. 1, 2013.

Faculty and staff do not need to enter any information to view their retirement eligibility dates. The estimated dates and contribution percentages are personalized and calculated automatically based on eligibility rules and data from service records for each individual, including age, service date, and years of service.

Employees can view their estimated retirement eligibility date by clicking the link on the Benefits Office website, or follow these steps:

• Go to Wolverine Access
• Select "Employee Business"
• Log in using your uniqname and Kerberos password
• Select "Benefits"
• Select "Est. Retirement Eligibility Dt"

For more information on the changes taking place on Jan. 1, 2013, go to the Benefits Stewardship at Michigan website.
