Retiree Insurance Enrollment

Upon receipt of the letter of intent for TERI participants ending TERI prior to the 60 month TERI service, retirement staff will notify the insurance unit. A benefits counselor from the insurance unit will contact the employee to schedule an appointment to cover options and paperwork. If a TERI participant works their full 60 month TERI service, a benefits counselor from the insurance unit will contact them to schedule an appointment approximately one month prior to the TERI termination date.

Paperwork must be completed within 31 days of the date employees end TERI to enroll in retiree insurance. Eligibility rules apply. It is the employee’s responsibility to complete and forward all retiree insurance paperwork within the designated deadline.

Annual Leave Payout Deferral

If employees ending TERI wish to defer an annual leave payout, they need to call the general benefits number at (864) 656-2713 to make an appointment. It is essential employees call and make an appointment 45 days prior to the date they will end TERI for assistance with the deferral. Failure to schedule an appointment within this time period, may result in not being able to defer the annual leave money and instead being paid out the money, which will be subject to taxes.

Continuing Retiree Benefits

Retiree ID Cards: Please indicate your desire to have a Retiree ID card issued. This can be done as part of your ending TERI letter, or before your effective TERI end date. The Retiree ID card will provide access to various campus services including the library, approved athletic events, forums, etc. Your request, along with a certified retirement date will be forwarded to the Tiger 1 office, who will issue the Retiree ID card.

Computer Access: Please have your department chair/head send authorization to include the following: your full name, social security number, Clemson userid, and department number to ithelp@clemson.edu before your retirement date, to arrange for your computer ID to be continued. Requests made after your retirement date are much more involved and will require greater time and are subject to not being processed.
