Retiree Benefits Summary

Some retirees who served as Full-Time Faculty or Administrator may have elected benefits through the Optional Retirement Plan (ORP), which is administered through TIAA. Information about retirement/pension benefits should be directed to MPSERS (800-381-5111) or TIAA (800-842-2252).
LCC Email Account Access
Upon request, the retiree will be provided a retiree email account and access to limited Help Desk information for LCC email accounts. Contact the Help Desk for more information.
The retiree, spouse, and IRS eligible dependents may take LCC courses tuition free (not to exceed 8 credits per family, per semester). A retiree or family member may be dropped to prevent displacing paying students. All fees associated with the course(s) will be paid by the retiree or family members.

Each year, LCC hosts a Retiree Luncheon where retirees can come back to campus, hear what's new with LCC from Executive Leadership, and enjoy lunch with some great company. Contact Nikki Cogswell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
