SECTION 3 : BENEFITS
3.9 BENEFITS IN RETIREMENT
Official retirement from the College is available upon attainment of age 60 and 10 years of service. There is no mandatory retirement age.
A Health Insurance Premium Reimbursement is paid by the College for each official retiree and spouse during their respective lifetimes. To be eligible for this benefit, the retiree must have been hired prior to January, 1995. This plan provides a payment of a flat dollar amount, determined annually by the College, to the retiree based upon documented health insurance premium expenses incurred by the retiree/spouse. The retiree may choose any health insurance they prefer under this plan.
Life insurance coverage is paid by the College for all retirees. The amount of insurance varies from $3,000 to $5,000 depending upon age.
Other benefits that continue in retirement include College ID cards and accompanying privileges (i.e., bookstore discount, library privileges, wellness programs, Life Sports Center privileges including free admission to most home sports athletic events), blood bank membership, and membership in the Allentown Teachers Credit Union.
