Perquisites & Privileges
Cornell University provides many benefits to its retirees. Most of these benefits are described in separate booklets for the university's endowed and contract colleges. Retirement and Beyond is published by the Benefit Services division of the Office of Human Resources and cover such topics as health insurance, Cornell Children's Tuition Scholarships, and tax-deferred annuities.
Additionally, Perquisites & Privileges, is a brochure drawn from the seventh edition of the Faculty Handbook (2002) supplemented by independent consultation with various offices responsible for implementing university policy.
Members of the academic staff who have retired or are considering retirement are urged to consult the websites maintained by CAPE and the Dean of the Faculty, http://theuniversityfaculty.cornell.edu/, as well as their department heads and University Benefit Services for further information.
