Ending employment

For employees, to prepare for ending Reed employment

Before you leave:
  • Unless your last day is a regular payday, your final check will be a paper check. Contact the business office if you have any questions about your final paycheck.
  • Ensure that you turn in all Reed property, including keys, computer equipment and your Reed ID card
  • Set up an appointment with someone in the HR office to pick up your last paycheck and take part in an exit interview on your last day of work
  • If you are relocating, provide HR with your new address information
Your benefits:
  • Your medical and dental benefits will end on the last day of the month in which your Reed employment ends
  • All other benefits (life insurance, flexible spending, etc.) end on the last day of your employment. If interested in continuing your life insurance coverage after employment, complete this form
  • You will soon receive information in the mail to your home address about continuation of medical, dental and/or flexible spending account coverage through COBRA. Compare this option with your options for buying medical coverage on the health insurance marketplace
