Retirement Application Processing Sessions

Human Resource Services will be hosting retirement application processing sessions for individuals who have already set their retirement date and last day worked and need assistance completing their SURS applications. Individuals attending must have already had a retirement counseling session. The dates and additional information regarding these sessions, as well as retirement procedures, are available at http://www.hr.niu.edu/ServiceAreas/Retirement/. Registration is required.

During this two-hour session, Human Resource Services will assist participants in completing the SURS application and will discuss resignation procedures (including the need to submit the final time sheet or benefit usage report), options for deferred compensation, payout withholding options (if applicable), and other important information given the last day worked. Release time is available for those attending the sessions.

Given the complexity of the pension changes, SURS has requested that all counseling sessions be conducted by them. Individuals who need retirement counseling should contact the State Universities Retirement System (SURS). The SURS individual counseling eligibility guidelines and procedures can be reviewed on the SURS web site at : http://www.surs.org/pdfs/counseling.pdf

We understand the perspective of all of our employees in working through the scope and complexity of the pension reform amendments. We will make every effort to assist you in obtaining the most recent information as provided by SURS.

If you have inquiries and need to register for one of the application processing sessions, please contact Human Resource Services at (815) 753-6000.
