YMCA of Greater Rochester – The YMCA of Greater Rochester, N.Y., understands that some workers need a longer period to phase into retirement. That’s why the YMCA offers a flexible phased-retirement program in which an employee can elect to reduce his or her workload based on his or her needs. The employee can move from full-time to half-time over a one- to three-year period while continuing to maintain full benefits. The phased-retirement plan gives the employee significant flexibility in deciding how quickly (or slowly) he or she wants to reduce work hours while moving toward retirement.
Phased retirement is simply good for business. It offers real value to mature workers while providing companies with continued access to proven talent.
