Post Retirement Benefits
Pace University will provide certain benefits to eligible full time employees upon retirement. Your eligibility for benefits in retirement will vary dependent upon when you were hired full time at the University and when you retire as a qualified retiree from the University.
If you have any questions regarding your eligibility for post-retirement benefits, please contact the University Benefits Office.
Email, ID Card and Facilities
Your current email account with the University will cease and you may elect to continue using a pace.edu email address. For staff, that email would include “.retired” after your name and before the @pace.edu; for faculty, “.emeritus”. For example, if Professor Mary Jones’s current email address is email@example.com, then her retiree email address would be firstname.lastname@example.org (if she was staff, it would be email@example.com). We encourage you to consider an out of office message indicating your new email address in advance of your retirement to notify contacts of your new email address. Further, if you wish to remove content from your email, you should do so prior to your retirement. Please create an ITS helpdesk ticket if you need assistance.
Remote access (VPN) will also cease as well as any system(s) to which you had access. In addition, with limited exception, remote access to library databases will not be available to retirees; for more information please contact Steve Feyl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, you can continue to gain access to University facilities however, a new retiree/emeritus identification card will be issued to you upon request by the One Card office. Contact the Human Resources office if you wish to validate the newly issued ID annually to gain access to the facilities.
Retiree Facility Access
Pace facilities are available for retiree use to keep you engaged in your professional endeavors and to maintain contact with the University. This includes campus libraries and shared space, subject to availability. Computers and printers are available for light use. When using Pace facilities, retirees must not remove any equipment, office supplies, or any other item belonging to the University. In addition, use of the copiers and mail services are prohibited.
