A request can be made once your paperwork has been processed with the University. This request can be as early as two months before your retirement date.

Your Retiree Mailbox

Your retiree mailbox will be available for one year after your retirement date. If you join the NIU Annuitants Association during that period, your retiree mailbox will be available until you are no longer a member of the Annuitant’s Association. Thereafter, your mailbox may be deleted at any time without notice.

Your Work Mailbox Will be Deleted

Your work mailbox will be available for 180 days after retirement. At that point, the mailbox is disabled. 30 days thereafter the mailbox is deleted.
