Retirement

At Penn, we see retirement as a continuation, not an end —

a vital new phase of your career and your life.

We understand that, as people live longer and economic conditions remain volatile, a healthy and happy retirement involves more careful planning than ever before. We are committed to providing faculty members with programs and support to navigate retirement with minimal stress.

Retired Penn faculty continue to enjoy a wide range of benefits, participate in research and campus life, and give back to the University in many different ways.

Organizations for Retired Faculty

We encourage faculty members to stay involved in the community through our Emeritus Faculty groups, which maintain active social and intellectual programs, provide valuable information, and help facilitate the transition from senior to emeritus status.
