Retirement Planning Guide
The Retirement Planning Guide provides a summary of information that will be useful to Duke employees as they plan for retirement. Duke encourages you to review the site several years before retiring to help formulate a complete retirement plan.
Duke offers two different types of retirement plans. Eligibility for participation in these plans is determined by whether you are paid biweekly or monthly. Both plans provide a comparable retirement income. Learn more about Duke's retirement plans.
