After your years of service to Carolina, there are some things you will want to review before you retire.
Individuals transitioning from an active employee status to a retiree status (e.g., no longer receiving a pay check directly from UNC-Chapel Hill), must initiate a request to keep an active PID as a University affiliate. The benefits office will initiate the retiree being established as an affiliate during the retirement process. Affiliate status has to be renewed every 10 years.
The retiree will be contacted via email prior to the expiration of the affiliate status and given an option to renew.
An individual who is retiring from the University but will be re-employed in some paid status, including faculty phased retirement or other temporary employment with the University, retains their PID as an employee and does not need to request a PID as a UNC affiliate. This is only necessary if the retiree does not receive a pay check from UNC-Chapel Hill.
Retirees can get a new UNC One Card which in turn facilitates continued access to various campus services (i.e. email access, employee discount program, campus recreation).The original UNC One Card held as an active employee will no longer be valid and must be reissued as a retiree.
Once a retiree’s PID as a University affiliate is activated, they must visit the UNC One Card office with a drivers’ license, passport or military ID for identification purposes and pay a One Card issuance fee. The UNC One Card Office is located in the Daniels Student Stores Building and can be reached at 919-962-8024 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note in particular, Sec. 4-1. Parking Permits, Section 3. Retired Faculty/Staff Permits. The Departmental Parking Coordinator for the retiree’s last employing department can assist in confirming availability of and obtaining issuance of a retiree parking permit.
There are other privileges that are extended to faculty retirees and additional information is provided in Section IX of the Faculty Handbook (Leaving the University).
In addition, Emeritus faculty may request University business cards to be printed to reflect their Emeritus title and current contact information. Such requests should be directed to the administrative office of the Department in which they were last appointed. Departments are encouraged to satisfy such requests but ultimately this is at each Chair’s discretion and subject to budget availability within the Department.
