Your benefits don't end when retirement begins. Learn more about what CU and PERA can do for you!
You’ve worked hard for the University of Colorado – and if you’re contemplating retirement, we want you to know how CU can work for you. At first glance, making these foundational plans for your upcoming retirement might feel overwhelming. Employees are urged to begin planning their transition into retirement 3-5 years before their anticipated retirement date. A crucial part of that planning includes taking steps to ensure your ongoing benefits coverage.
