Retirement Program Options
The University of Texas System provides both Mandatory and Voluntary Retirement Programs. You are eligible to contribute to the Mandatory Retirement Programs if you are employed in a benefits eligible position, for at least 20 hours per week and 4 ½ continuous months. Mandatory retirement programs will require employee and employer contributions.
Mandatory Retirement Programs
Anyone receiving a salary with UT Austin is eligible to participate in the voluntary retirement program, known as UTSAVER. This includes graduate student employees, temporary, part-time employees, and return to work retirees. Voluntary retirement programs do not include employer contributions.
