Recall Appointments

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 Recall of Academic Appointees.
  • To ensure that retirees are not recalled at greater than 43% time. All requests for appointments at greater than 43% must be forwarded to the EVC via the Vice Provost for Academic Personnel for approval, in advance of anticipated appointments.(See APM 205)
