and Employee Retention Incentive (TERI)
TERI is a deferred retirement plan that allows eligible members of
the S.C. Retirement System to retire for purposes of the S.C. Retirement
System and escrow their monthly retirement checks while continuing
to work in their current positions for up to five years.
Since circumstances affecting retirement decisions vary from individual to individual, faculty and staff are encouraged to seek answers to specific questions from a benefits counselor at the University or the S.C. Retirement System.
For more information about TERI, review our Frequently
Asked Questions section, telephone or e-mail the University's
Benefits Office at 777-6650
