50-55 Age Rule
As of March 26, 2003, if you are at least 50 years of age, but not yet 55 years of age and have 15 years of company seniority at the time you leave the Company, you will be eligible for retiree travel privileges at age 55. If you leave the Company before meeting these age and service requirements, you will not receive retiree travel privileges even though you may be eligible for pension payments or other types of retirement benefits at a later date. You must contact HR Services once you meet the age requirement in order to receive retiree travel. By electing the 50-55 Age Rule, you will be separated from the Company and not considered a retiree until age 55 at which time you will need to contact HR Services.
