Unless you are a faculty member or have another affiliation with Johns Hopkins, your JHED account will be disabled 90 days after your retirement date. You will no longer be able to access your current Johns Hopkins email account and the contents in that mailbox will be unrecoverable.
As part of your retiree benefits, you are eligible for a retiree email account with the address <yourJHEDid@retiree.jh.edu>. This is a fully functioning email account and you will need to register it within 90 days of your retirement date.
Upon retirement, you will receive an email in your employee account with instructions and a temporary password. In order to set up your retiree email account, you will first need to log in to your employee account for this information. For your reference, you may view sample instructions here. If you do not receive the email with instructions and your temporary password, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your eligibility for a retiree email.
Note that emails and contact lists stored in your Hopkins employee email account will not automatically transfer to your new retiree email account. During the 90-day transition period before your JHED account is deactivated, save your contact lists and forward important personal emails.
For additional questions or assistance setting up your retiree email account, please contact the IT Help Desk at 410-955-HELP (4357).
