Voluntary Early Retirement
Federation University Australia (the University) is running a Voluntary Early Retirement Scheme (VERS). The purpose of the VERS is to recognise long-serving continuing employees who wish to retire from the University with an enhanced exit opportunity. The VERS will also support workforce regeneration.
The Federation University Australia Union Collective Agreement 2015–2018 (the Agreement) provides for voluntary early retirement for Academic employees: clause 35. The University is intending—as provided for in clause 35.2 of the Agreement—to broaden this scheme to apply to general/professional and TAFE teaching staff.
To determine whether this may be right for you, the following documents have been prepared:
- Frequently Asked Questions (docx, 105kb)
- Estimate of Benefits calculator (xlsx, 21kb)
- Expression of Interest form (docx, 75kb)
- Draft Deed of Release (docx, 55kb)
Employees considering accepting voluntary early retirement may benefit from attending a superannuation, Centrelink and/or Employee Assistance Program information session regarding their options.
