Retirement Incentive Option
The 2020 Retirement Incentive Option, often called the "RIO" for short, is a one-time benefit that will only be available for a short period of time, starting on August 17, 2020. Only University employees who are close to retirement and meet the eligibility requirements can participate.
Updated resources for supervisors to support the return to campus are available from OHR plus FAQs and information for employees..
You may enroll in, increase, decrease, or stop a 2020 Flexible Spending Account (dependent care or health care) election any time before August 31, 2020 without a qualifying life event, due to a special opportunity from the IRS. Active employees who took a previous opportunity in 2020 to change their FSA(s) are still eligible to make changes now. See the FSA page for details and forms.
