Life Event - Termination
When you terminate UW employment, you will need to take time-critical action for continuation or conversion of your benefits. To avoid any loss of benefits, contact your Benefits Office before terminating your employment to make arrangements for continuing or converting your coverage.
If you are retiring, please review the brochure Employee Benefits at Retirement. The brochure addresses options to continue or covert your insurance coverage, how to apply for a retirement benefit and what happens to accrued leave at retirement. Please also review the UWSA retirement page for more information.
UW-Madison has a comprehensive brochure for all employees discussing the effect termination of employment has on your benefits is accessible on-line. This brochure provides information on who is eligible to continue or convert insurance plans, how and when to apply, and additional program information that may be helpful.
