Employee Initiated Reduction in Time (ERIT) Program

The University offers the Employee-initiated Reduction in Time (ERIT) Program to enable eligible career staff (except Senior Management Group members) to voluntarily reduce their working time and corresponding pay. Eligible employees may begin to sign up for ERIT immediately. This program has been extended from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2017. Learn more about the sunsetting of the ERIT program.

Phased Retirement Program

UC Berkeley is implementing the Phased Retirement Program from April 1, 2012 through December 31, 2014 to enable eligible career staff to voluntarily reduce their working time and corresponding pay. The intent of the program is to facilitate transition into retirement for eligible employees who are 55 or older. The campus is offering the program to pave the way for longer term planning for employees, their families and their departments. Departments will be able to better evaluate their needs and plan for transferring an employee’s responsibilities before retirement. The program also creates the potential for cost savings while offering employees a cash incentive.
