For some, retirement is a long way off; for others, it’s just around the corner. Even if retirement isn’t in your near future, evaluating your financial and family needs can begin on day one of employment at NYU.

The Work Life office has been listening to what faculty members and administrators need to successfully plan their retirement. We intend to develop workshops and offer resources to better meet the needs of the NYU community pre- and post-retirement. The Work Life office also intends to foster a continued connection between retired members of the community and NYU.

To schedule a one-on-one consultation to discuss retirement and ways to stay connected to the university, please contact our Program Director Stacey Gordon.

Retirement Transitions Affinity Group

Work Life is creating an affinity-style group called TART:S—Talking About Retirement Transitions: Seriously—for faculty members who are within one to three years away from retirement. This small, supportive group will discuss topics related to retirement such as creating a retirement identity, finding community groups to connect to, and trying out new ideas about what to do once retirement begins. Please fill out the TART:S form if you are interested in joining.
