Schedule Reduction Opportunities Send Us Feedback

Voluntary Schedule ReductionStay Informed

The Voluntary Schedule Reduction is available to UMPSA , COLT, Police, Service and Maintenance  and non-represented employees.  When it is mutually beneficial to the University and an employee, a full-time regular employee with continuous service equaling five full-time equivalent years may request a reduction in schedule.  Employees retain their health and dental insurance at the same premium rate as full-time regular employees. TIAA-CREF contributions, leave accruals and life and disability insurances are pro-rated based on the employee’s reduced salary.   The schedule reduction shall be to no less than one-half time.  The reductions will normally be for an indefinite duration, and there will be no right to return to full-time status.  However, if the employee and the University agree at the time the reduction occurs, it may be for a specified period with a return to full-time regular status guaranteed at its conclusion.  For application and complete details please refer to the following:

 

Mutual Agreement for Reduction of Hours

A Mutual Reduction of Hours is available to all full-time employees when the employee and the department mutually agree.   Employees must work at least 20 hours per week and their reduced work schedule may not exceed 1/3 of the pay periods in their work year.  The employee will continue to accrue disability and vacation leave (where applicable) and retain eligibility for insurance and retirement benefits as if they remained on a full-time status.  Retirement contributions for both hourly and salaried staff are based on salary earned during the terms of the agreement.  For application and complete details please refer to the following:

 

Partial Phased Retirement

The Partial Phased Retirement Program (PPRP) is available to employees in the AFUM and UMPSA units and non-represented salaried employees.  Employees are eligible to apply to participate if:

  • They are at least 55 years of age and have at least 10 continuous years of full-time regular University of Maine service; or

  • Their age in years and length of continuous full-time regular University of Maine System service in years totals 73 or more years.

For application and complete details please refer to the following:
