Questions & Answers

ERIP Review Process

1.  Is acceptance of my application automatic?

Departments and campus administration will review and approve applications based on meeting the following institutional objectives:

  • Reduction in salary/wage and benefit costs
  • Redirecting positions to focus on higher priorities
  • Minimizing involuntary reductions in personnel

2. What are the approval steps?

  • University Human Resources will first review the ERIP application to confirm the employee’s eligibility to participate.
  • ERIP applications require the following approvals:
    • Initial Reviewer
      • Regional Campus:  the Chancellor
      • IUB or IUPUI Campus:  the RC Head (e.g. Dean)
      • UA units and IU School of Medicine:  the applicable Vice President
    • 2nd Level Reviewer
      • Regional Campus:  the VP for Regional Affairs
      • IUB or IUPUI:  the Campus Provost/Chancellor
      • UA units and IU School of Medicine:  President's office
    • Final Reviewer
      • President’s Office for all
  • If the Initial Reviewer approves the application, then he or she is responsible for providing a statement demonstrating how the ERIP separation will meet the above institutional objectives, including a statement explaining how any planned replacement will also meet those objectives.
  • Any reviewer may deny the ERIP application.

     
3. When will I know if my application has been accepted or denied?

By mid-June 2011, applicants will be notified whether or not their application has been approved. If approved, applicants will be provided a Separation Agreement to sign.

4. My application has been denied.  May I ask that it be reconsidered?

If the Initial Reviewer disapproves the ERIP application, the employee may request reconsideration by that reviewer, who may approve the ERIP application or uphold the initial decision. There is no further consideration if the Initial Reviewer upholds the initial decision.

5. I have changed my mind and do not want to retire.  How can I withdraw my application?

  • To withdraw the application before signing the Separation Agreement, complete the online withdrawal form.
  • Applicants may withdraw their application at any time up to seven days after signing the Separation Agreement by completing the online withdrawal or sending a notice of revocation VIA CERTIFIED U.S. MAIL, ADDRESSED TO:
