Leaving the University
When leaving UNC-Chapel Hill, you will need to understand how your benefits are affected by this employment status change. Please refer to the document listed in the resource section for information about your benefit and final payment(s) from the University.
If you have questions about your benefits after reviewing this material, please contact your Benefit Consultant at 919-962-3071.
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.
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.
Retirees are eligible to continue to use of Campus Recreation Facilities (Gym& Pool, Finely Golf Course, Kerr Lake, and the Faculty & Staff Recreation Association—The Farm) with payment of appropriate fees. A UNC One Card is required to access some facilities and to take advantage of the employee discount program.
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.
