There should be no assumption that retirees will be able to return to a part-time position at DePaul after retiring under the Early Retirement Incentive Program. After a 6 month break in service, staff members who retire under the Early Retirement Program, may be considered for re-employment by DePaul University in an adjunct faculty position if they have previously been employed by the university in that capacity. Pay will be offered at the normal adjunct rates.
Rehire decisions will be made by the Dean with permission of the Provost on a case-by-case basis, and will depend on the College/Department’s needs and the individual’s qualifications.
However, you may not return to employment in:
- A full-time staff position
- A part-time staff position
- A temporary position
- A consulting position
- A student employee position
All retirees must adhere to a waiting period before returning to teach and their teaching schedule must be managed to preserve their retiree medical eligibility before any consideration can be given to the re-employment of a retiree. If a retiree would like to accept a part-time teaching position, s/he should consult with a tax or legal advisor to ensure that qualified plan distribution rules are not violated and that there are no impediments to taking a distribution from the 403(b) plan. S/he should also consult with human resources to ensure that s/he will not jeopardize retiree medical eligibility.
