Helping you plan for retirement is important to Fordham University. The Fordham University Guide to Retirement is intended to introduce you to the University’s retiree benefit programs to help you make the right decision for you. This guide will also direct you to other resources for more information. This guide is not, however, intended to provide detailed information about these programs, so it is essential for you to review the plan documents and related materials within the benefits section of the website before making any decisions.
