Retirement Plans:

Gettysburg College provides a retirement program for employees who work 1,000 hours or more per year. There is a two-year waiting period before the college begins making a contribution to your retirement. The College makes a contribution of 10% of base salary to a retirement annuity with TIAA.

The waiting period may be waived for an eligible employee who has fully vested and funded benefits under the terms of a retirement plan of a previous educational institution.

If you have contracts, it is imperative that you notify the Human Resources Office, and that you supply us with your contract certificate number(s).

Gettysburg College will not reimburse your account if you delay to provide the Human Resources Office with this information.

Employees may immediately contribute to a Supplemental Retirement Annuity (Tax-deferred Annuity). Those are offered through TIAA.
