Create a bright financial future
Northeastern helps faculty and staff plan for a fulfilling, financially secure future by offering two comprehensive retirement programs.
We offer a variety of investment options and resources so that everyone can make retirement a priority.
Basic Retirement Account
For all eligible faculty and staff, our Basic retirement benefits can be an excellent way save for the future. Open to participation after two years of employment at Northeastern, when you contribute a minimum of 5% of your salary, Northeastern will contribute 10%.
Supplemental Retirement Account
Enrollment available to all benefits-eligible employees upon hire. Includes hardship withdrawals, loans, and in-service withdrawals.
Exceptional offerings, even after retirement
Northeastern benefits don’t end after retirement. We ensure eligible university employees retire well with continued offerings, including free tickets to campus events and tuition scholarships for two courses every academic term, full tuition for dependent children who qualify for admission, parking on campus, and more.
