  • Design policies that are consistent with Cornell’s commitment to sustainability

Overarching concepts

Overarching Concepts

  • Retirees who also have disabilities will be eligible for the more liberal privileges offered to faculty and staff with disabilities (under development)

  • “Retiree” is defined as an individual who has retired from the University at age 55 or older with at least 10 years of credited service time.

    • Exception: individuals who retired under a NYS early retirement incentive program (same service requirement applies)

  • Retirees should be treated equally

    • Exception: special additional privileges for 25-year retirees to be granted upon request and presentation of a 25-year retiree CUID

Overarching concepts cont d

Overarching Concepts (cont’d)

  • Retirees who return to the University for paid work are “employees” not “retirees” for the duration of that paid work. They can take advantage of the same no-fee or discounted privileges available to all University employees.

    • Exception: retirees may retain their no-fee permit that allows parking in “O” and “A” areas; any other permit may be purchased at the full employee rate

  • Privileges will be specific and printed in literature and/or posted on the webpages which are prepared for retirees

Transit privileges

Transit Privileges

  • All retirees with CUID cards will receive TCAT “zone 1” privileges, Monday – Friday

    • This is the same base privilege accorded to all regular CU employees

  • Choice between a parking permit (fee or no-fee) OR no-fee OmniRide (7-day, full TCAT privileges)

    • Retiree OmniRide would not include the books of one-day parking permits designed for daily commuters
