All retirees must have made an appointment with Benefits in the Office of Human Resources before becoming a TWU Retirement Recipient. Please see information below:

TWU Retiree To be considered a TWU Retiree and be honored at TWU’s Service Awards & Retirement Recognition Program, employees must have a minimum of 10 years of unwithdrawn State or Texas ISD service and be at least 65 years of age, OR have a minimum of 10 years of unwithdrawn State or Texas ISD service and meet Rule of 80 (age + years of service).  Please note, employees may be eligible to retire without meeting these conditions but will not be considered a TWU Retiree.  Retirees are honored only once.  Each retiree is honored at time of retirement regardless of any future return to work agreements.  Faculty members who choose to participate in the Retired Teaching Option (RTO) will be honored as a retiree BEFORE beginning RTO employment.
