Transitions to Retirement

Benefits Administration holds annual workshops called Transitions to help faculty and staff learn about retirement options. Information from past sessions is available and includes handouts on USC benefits post-retirement, USC Senior Care, and Medicare. These are bi-annual events, traditionally held in April and July.
