Use the criteria below to determine whether appointments and hours count toward career status and full benefits eligibility.
First, the appointment must qualify. Some exclusions are due to long-standing UCRP rules.
|Appointment Types||UCRP BELI 1||Career Status|
|Limited Appointments for PPSM-covered staff, as well as Limited Appointments for represented staff covered under labor contracts||Yes||Yes|
|Academic appointments which are considered "limited appointment equivalent" and are not otherwise excluded from UCRP Staff employees with employment "contract positions" under PPSM policy section 3 "Limitedl" staff appointments under union contracts without the Limited Appointment provision||Yes||No|
Active PERS members in Limited Appointments* (Few, if any)
|Rehired Retirees in Limited Appointments||*below||Yes|
|Rehired Retirees in appointments which are equivalent to Limited Appointments and which are not otherwise excluded from UCRP||*below||No|
|Per diem*; Employees hired after August 1, 1989, as visiting appointees*; Regents' Professors or Regents' Lecturers*; Casual Restricted appointments*;
By Agreement appointments paid as a flat dollar amount not tied to hours worked*.
*Rehired retirees will be subject to having hours counted toward active UCRP membership unless they sign a UCRP election form which explicitly exempts them from accruing additional UCRP Service Credit during the period of reemployment. Signing the UCRP election form will allow monthly retirement income to continue uninterrupted by periods of active UCRP membership. Rehired Retiree policy must be followed when rehiring a UC retiree. See Rehiring UC Retirees.
For qualifying appointments, hours accrued during/within the 12-month period must be "eligible hours."
