The UC Retirement Administration Service Center has met a critical milestone in their strategic initiative to rebuild the center’s operations — the launch of a new team and phone line (888-825-6833) dedicated entirely to serving the survivors and beneficiaries of UC employees and retirees. This specially trained team will offer a high-touch experience, delivering benefits as quickly and smoothly as possible.

UC RAYS (Retirement At Your Service) website will be unavailable December 15, 2023 – January 2, 2024 to upgrade server.
