Retirement is accomplished by the employee submitting their intent to retire using the online MaineStreet Retirement Guide.  If the employee is not eligible to retire, they should follow the resignation process.  The Employee Benefits Center will notify the direct supervisor, HR Business Partner and Payroll of the employee's intent to retire.  

 The department follows the separation/termination process by completing the Separation/Termination Checklist. The completed checklist must be obtained from the employee by the department on or before the employee’s final day of work.

 The Employee Benefits Center will process elected retiree benefits submitted using MaineStreet Retirement Guide.
