Retirement Classes

The Benefits Office offers monthly Planning for Retirement sessions to help you prepare for a successful retirement. Covered topics include retirement eligibility, benefits in retirement, retiree contributions to health care, retirement income options, and additional retiree privileges.

Class Information

Classes are held at Wolverine Tower (3003 S State St), and occasionally at other campus locations. Please carefully note the location of each class before signing up. If you are attending a class at Wolverine Tower, note that the building doors lock at 6:00 p.m.

There is no charge to attend, but seating is limited. (Note: Sessions are removed from this page when all the seats are full.)

If You Are Unable to Attend in Person

If you can't make it in person, download and review the Planning for Retirement presentation, a guide to your retirement benefits and the U-M retiree health plan rates for those retiring on or after January 1, 2017. You may also wish to review the retirement checklist and retirement FAQs for additional information. For information about Social Security and Medicare, register to attend a presentation by the Social Security Administration. For answers to questions about retirement or your benefits, please call the SSC Contact Center at 5-2000 from the Ann Arbor campus, (734) 615-2000 locally, or (866) 647-7657 toll free, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
