The Washington State University  Board of Regents has approved the Voluntary Early Retirement Incentive (VERI) program for participants of the WSU Retirement Plan (also commonly referred to as the TIAA-CREF plan).
 
WSU will make a one-time payment of $18,000 into a tax exempt medical expense plan for employees retiring under VERI.  To be eligible an employee must be a current member of the WSURP, must have been a member of the WSURP for at least 10 years, must be 55 or older before the effective date of retirement (no later than July 1, 2009) and must begin receiving a retirement payment as a result of their retirement. 
 
Human Resource Services will be presenting seminars to provide more information about the VERI program.  Employees are encouraged to attend a seminar prior to requesting a individual meeting with HRS personnel. 
 
These sessions will be available to non-Pullman participants via AMS/WECN videoconferencing.  Following are the dates and locations:
 
February 19
