The University may recall to active service, on a year-to-year basis, academic appointees who have retired, provided such appointments are not in conflict with the terms of the University of California Retirement Plan (UCRP) and/or University policy. Retirees cannot simultaneously receive retirement payments from UCRP and earn additional service credit from UCRP. As part of the employment process, it is necessary:
- To follow the Guidelines for Rehire of UC Retirees
- To provide all retirees with an option either to waive future UC Retirement Plan service credit or to become an active member accruing additional benefits (if the employee otherwise would be eligible to accrue UC Retirement Plan benefits in their new employment situation). This UC Retirement Plan Waiver & Release Form is required each time a retiree begins a new period of re-employment and should be returned to the campus Benefits Office.
- To ensure that retirees are not recalled at greater than 46% (or more than 1,000 hours in 12 months). All requests for appointments at greater than 46% must be forwarded to the EVC for approval, in advance of anticipated appointments. However, due to potential Medicare complications, Recall appointments will generally be 43% time or less (see APM 200 Appendix A)
