Time Is Right to Plan for Retirement

The USC Emeriti Center has scheduled a series of informal question and answer sessions to address concerns that staff and faculty may have prior to scheduling their retirement from the university.

These are “bonus sessions” that will take place before and after the university’s formal “Transitions 2006” seminars to be held in mid-April, sponsored by the Office of Benefits Administration, said Janette C. Brown, director of the Emeriti Center.

Questions that will be addressed include: What is the process for retiring from USC? What can the USC Emeriti Center do for me? Can I participate in USC activities, committees, etc.? Can I keep my e-mail address? Free parking? How can I estimate what my retirement income might be? Does the USC Senior Care program cover prescription drug costs? What are USC retirees doing now? Or, bring your own questions.

Q&A sessions will be held on the University Park Campus on:

Wed., April 5, 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., GER 224 (light refreshments);

Fri., April 7, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., GER 224 (light refreshments); and
