Part I Section II: Benefits Provisions for Retired University Faculty

A retired faculty member is a person, 62 years of age or older, who held a tenured, full-time teaching appointment at Fordham University, has completed ten (10) years of service, has retired from this position at the University, and is receiving a pension from the University retirement plans. All retired faculty, as defined above, retain many of the benefits which they enjoyed as active faculty members, except when those benefits are modified as part of a special retirement package.

Faculty who have the rank of Professor or Associate Professor when they retire are eligible for appointment as Professor Emeritus or Associate Emeritus as provided in the University Statutes. (See §4-02.08)
