Refer Questions To: Director, Human Resources


This policy applies to faculty, teachers, and staff in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University.


By an Act of Congress, all regular status employees participate in the Federal retirement systems (Civil Service Retirement System or Federal Employees Retirement System). Participation is mandatory. All other employees are covered by Social Security and are governed by applicable regulations. In addition, employees are required to participate in Medicare Part A. The University follows the regulations, eligibility requirements, and contribution schedules established by these programs.

In compliance with the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, amended in 1986, the University may not impose a mandatory retirement age for its employees. Therefore, employees may continue to work at Gallaudet University as long as they are able to fulfill their responsibilities in a satisfactory manner.
