Benefits and Resource Committee

The Retired Faculty and Staff Benefits and Resource Committee advocates on behalf of retirees and pre-retirees to ensure important university benefits and privileges are available to support retirees. It also explores resources and wellness initiatives beneficial to all faculty and staff and their families. Through the committee’s efforts, special publications, seminars and travel trips have been planned and executed with support by the USC Emeriti Center.

Members of the committee include retired faculty and staff, USC’s retirement navigators, and representatives from the Academic Senate, Staff Assembly, Office of Benefits Administration, USC Health Plans, Center for Work and Family Life, USC Retirement Plans Administration, the USC Credit Union, the USC Emeriti Center, and other invited campus representatives. The committee typically meets at the University Religious Center on the Second Wednesday of the month from 10:00 am to 11:00 am throughout the academic year.
