UMFA Retirement Allowance Program
The UMFA Retirement Allowance Program is a voluntary plan offering a full or partial basic allowance to the eligible member, dependent upon his/her age and the number of advance years of notice given to the University prior to retirement.

The University of Manitoba and UMFA negotiated this retirement program in the recent round of bargaining, as outlined in the Letter of Understanding.

To be eligible, the member must be at least 55 years of age and have at least 15 years of service at the University of Manitoba on the date that they have chosen as their retirement date. The date of retirement must be either July 1st or January 1st of a calendar year (with last day of work June 30th or December 31st respectively).

The first deadline to enroll in the program has passed, but upcoming deadlines will be:

  • June 30, 2017
  • December 31, 2017
  • June 30, 2018
  • December 15, 2018 (end date of program)
