The University of Nevada Las Vegas offers a phase in retirement program that allows employees to phase in to retirement over an agreed period of time not to exceed 5 years. During the phase in period, the employee works less than full time but equal to or more than half time so that they retain benefits eligibility. Contributions to the employee's retirement account during the phase-in period will be based on the employee's salary at 100% FTE (both employee and employer contributions).
The phase-in process is governed by a formal contract between the employee and the University. The basic provisions of the program are outlined below.
