Enhanced Retirement Incentive Program

Dear Staff and Faculty, 

As was noted in yesterday’s email to the community from President McCartney, Smith is offering an Enhanced Retirement Incentive Program (ERI) for early and standard retirement. This is an initiative created to invite employees who meet the eligibility criteria to volunteer for retirement and in turn receive an enhanced separation payment and special health and dental contributions for a limited time.

You may be eligible for the ERI if you meet the following two criteria:

  • You are at least 55 years old and have a combined age and completed years of service at the college equaling 70 or more 
  • You are a regular, benefit eligible staff or faculty member, in either an active position or on an authorized leave of absence. 

You are not eligible if you have already given retirement notice for the calendar year 2020. 

If you meet the eligibility requirements you will receive a follow up communication with program details and timeline for next steps by September 5, 2020.


Anne-Marie Szmyt
Associate Vice President of Human Resources
