Dear UC ANR Colleagues,
UC is launching its annual medical plans satisfaction survey to learn more about what faculty, academics, and staff employees think about the University of California's medical plans.
Feedback from the survey helps UC Systemwide Human Resources plan for and shape future benefits offerings.
This year more than 32,000 randomly selected faculty, academic, staff, retirees and their spouses/domestic partners will be invited to complete the survey. DSS Research is conducting the survey on behalf of the university.
Beginning May 4, this randomly selected group will receive an email at their work email address from University of California Human Resources (
You may have seen an announcement from UCOP regarding the implementation of the UC Phased Retirement Program for January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2019. The intent of the Phased Retirement Program is to help eligible employees who are 55 years or older transition into retirement and allow for longer-term planning for employees, their families and the unit they work in.
ANR has decided that it will not offer the program in 2015 to avoid adding to the workload of our already thin workforce. One of the primary guidelines in the program prohibits the department from adding capacity to offset a participating employee's reduction in time.
