Early Retirement: A Survey of Corporate and University Benefits.
Shreeve, William; And Others
While corporations have been offering early retirement to their employees for a number of years, universities and colleges have only recently used such programs to create change. This survey was conducted to determine how professors are faring as relative newcomers to early retirement programs. Questionnaires were mailed to 159 colleges and universities and 100 corporations, with response rates of 69.2% and 72% respectively. Tabulations are provided on responses to 14 questions concerning early retirement program attributes, benefits, and options, including counseling and financial planning services. Results show that professors are faring as well as or better than their corporate counterparts on virtually all measures, and are offered significantly more opportunities for phased or gradual retirement.
