Retirement Heading link

Residents do not pay social security taxes; instead, eight percent (8%) of your gross earnings is deducted from your paycheck and placed in State Universities Retirement System (SURS) which is invested in stock accounts. At the end of 5 years, you can receive as much as the lump sum of contributions, interest, and 1:1 matching depending on the SURS plan you enroll in. This can amount to more than $50,000 returned at the
end of residency.

Additional retirement funds may be established through the University if desired.
