UC offers comprehensive retirement benefits to help you build a financially secure future. These benefits, designed to reward faculty and staff who serve a full career with the university, include: the UC Retirement Plan (UCRP), which is a traditional pension plan, voluntary savings plans with pretax and after-tax contributions and investments you control, and retiree health benefits.

In combination with Social Security and Medicare, UC’s benefits help you to have financial security when you retire.
