Following consultation with staff councils and representatives, President Baker has authorized a 5-day operations schedule during the summer months. Clients of the university community, including current and prospective students, are increasingly interested in having access to university facilities on a 5-day basis in the summer. Accordingly, university departments and offices will be required to maintain full operations on a 5-day basis. The following flextime policy will be applicable subject to operational requirements. It is anticipated that supervisors will work to accommodate staff schedule preferences within the guidelines of this procedure.
The SURS Board of Trustees recently set the effective
date for changes to the Money Purchase factors as
January 4, 2016. The changes to the factors are a result
of a recent actuarial experience study which recommended a
reduction of the assumed rate of investment return and updated
mortality tables to reflect an overall increased life
expectancy. An actuarial experience study is required by
state statute at least once every five years.
The changes to the Money Purchase factors will NOT affect:
Survivor benefit recipients
Self-Managed Plan members
Members who began participation on or after July 1, 2005
Members whose benefit is highest under the General Formula calculation
