The UW retiree card is the UW identification card needed for UW retiree privileges. It replaces the UW employee card.
Total Benefits authorizes retiree cards as part of the retirement process. Approximately two weeks from your retirement's effective date, you may obtain a new retiree photo ID card at one of several Husky Card Account & ID Centers. Bring your UW-issued ID number and U.S. state- or federally-issued photo identification with you (such as a driver's license or passport). One UW retiree card is available per household.
Surviving spouses and registered same-sex domestic partners of retirees may continue retiree privileges. Contact Total Benefits to request authorization of a card in the survivor's name. After confirming that the record has been changed and a new ID number issued, the spouse or partner may get a new photo ID card at one of the Husky Card Account & ID Centers listed below.
Replace lost or damaged retiree ID cards at a Husky Card Account & ID Center. It is recommended that you call or email with your UW employee ID number to confirm that our records list the applicant as a retiree before coming to campus. If it is not yet updated, contact Total Benefits. The cost to replace a lost card is $25.
For a full list of the privileges and resources available to UW retirees, please refer to the UW Retired Faculty and Staff Privileges and Campus Resources website.
