Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program

In June 2020, UGA announced the creation of a Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program for FY21 for faculty and staff who are eligible to retire. This program provides a one-time financial incentive equal to 1/3 of the individual's contract salary (for faculty) or annual salary (for staff). We are pleased to have the flexibility to offer this to faculty and staff who have dedicated so much of their professional lives to the University. Below you will find links to apply for this incentive, FAQs and more. Questions about this program can be directed to UGA Human Resources at or 706-542-2222.
