You must contact the Human resources Department to begin the actual retirement process. We strongly recommend that you obtain an estimate from your retirement system (TRSL, LASERS, or ORP) office 18 months prior to your anticipated retirement date. The estimate can be requested by mail or you may schedule an appointment with a retirement system Customer Service Representative to obtain the estimate. A link to for TRSL and LASERS is listed below.
Human Resources will guide you through the retirement process, supplying all of the information you need about retirement and insurance. We provide the information you need to plan for retirement, but should not advise you on what to do.
If you have not already done so, you should choose your exact retirement date. Afterwards, your benefits can be estimated based on the exact date.
The best place to obtain assistance is in Human Resources. We can provide personalized assistance and have your employment records. We may also provide you with information on when your benefit payments can begin on your proposed retirement date. You will also find out how this date affects factors used to determine the amount of your retirement benefit, such as your length of service, and high-3 average salary.
Yes, you may continue your health insurance coverage. However, the amount of your health insurance deduction will depend upon the number of years you have had the health insurance with the Office of Group Benefits. Contact the Human Resources Department for more details.
We recommend that you contact Human Resources at least 60 days prior to your retirement date.
The requirement to submit a copy of your marriage license and birth certificates for you and your spouse is mandated by your retirement system, not Human Resources. For your convenience, we have attached a few links below:
Although unused sick leave cannot be used to attain eligibility for retirement, TRSL and LASERS does convert it to retirement credit, after you retire.
This will depend upon your retirement system. Generally speaking, you will receive a cash payout for 200 hours of sick leave and 300 hours of annual leave if you are a member of TRSL. If you have any leave remaining, it will be converted to retirement credit.
If you are a member of LASERS, Delgado will pay you for up to 300 hours of annual leave, any remaining leave will be converted to retirement credit.
Please contact Human Resources for more information specific to your individual situation.
