6.2 Retirement

For benefits purposes, MIT considers employees who leave MIT at or after age 55 with 10 years of benefits-eligible employment (after age 45) to be 'retirees' of MIT, whether they resigned voluntarily, were laid off, or if they otherwise left involuntarily. Having retired from MIT does not preclude future re-employment at the Institute, although retirement benefits will sometimes need to be suspended if a retiree resumes work at MIT in a benefits-eligible status.

Information about benefits for retirees can be found at the Human Resources Employee Benefits website.
