Intel U.S. blue badge employees and U.S. retirees can donate year-round to thousands of eligible charitable and education organizations and have the donation matched by the Intel Foundation. This doubles the impact of donations with a match up to $10,000 per participant, per year ($5,000 for eligible charitable organizations and another $5,000 for eligible education organizations). The annual deadline for Donation Matching is December 15th at 3 pm PST.

See Intel’s complete guidelines for this program.

The Intel Foundation matches the time that Intel blue badge employees and U.S. retirees spend volunteering in schools and non-profits with a cash donation. For every hour volunteered, the Intel Foundation will match those hours with a grant once the organization reaches 20 hours for the year. The volunteer hours of all Intel employees and U.S. retirees are accumulated to determine the total annual grant. It’s that simple. For more information on how to record your hours and complete guidelines, please visit http://intelretiree.com/volunteering/.

Deadline to submit volunteer hours: December 15th at 3 pm PST. Any hours submitted for that calendar year after that date will not be eligible for the Intel Involved Volunteer Matching program.

Intel partners with MetLife to offer retirees a voluntary plan that offers access to comprehensive dental coverage. You may use SERMA to get reimbursed for eligible dental premiums. If you’re currently enrolled in MetLife Dental, your enrollment continues unless you opt-out. If you’re not enrolled, MetLife will send you a letter explaining how to enroll. For more information, call MetLife at 866-832-5756.

MetLife Legal Plans provides you convenient and affordable access to a highly qualified network of attorneys for your personal legal matters such as preparation of a trust or will, purchase or sale of a home, foreclosure defense, or divorce. The annual fee for MetLife Legal is $204. MetLife will send you a letter explaining how to enroll or contact MetLife Customer Service at 877-770-4638 and select prompt 1.

U.S. retirees receive a $300 cash award as a thank you for their dedication and hard work. Funds are added to their recognition.intel.com reloadable debit card and will appear approximately four weeks after the employee’s official retirement date.

Intel's stock benefit program is an important part of our employees' overall compensation and benefits package.

Some things to keep in mind when you retire from Intel:

  • Stock option vesting may accelerate upon retirement, if certain criteria are met. Restricted stock unit (RSU) vesting schedules may be impacted too. Unvested RSUs will be canceled as of your last day worked.
  • Review the terms and conditions and plan rules for each of the grants in your E*TRADE stock account to understand how each of your stock grants are impacted.
  • Access your online E*TRADE account and click on the Grants/Units tab to view your stock option expiration dates. Click on the Grants/Units sub-tab called Restricted to view your RSU vesting schedule.
  • Expiration and Vest dates—per your plan rules—will be updated in your stock account, typically within one week following entry of your termination date in Intel's system of record.
  •  Make sure to exercise your stock options before they expire. If your expiration dates fall on a US weekend or US holiday when the market is closed, you must exercise no later than a half-hour prior to the stock market closing on the last trading day prior to your expiration date. Remember stock market hours of operation are based on the US Eastern time zone.
  • If you retire from Intel before the end of a Stock Purchase Plan (SPP) subscription period, you will receive a refund of your SPP contributions for that period in your final paycheck. You will not receive stock or interest on SPP contributions.
  •  Your Intel Employee stock account with E*TRADE will remain open for a period of 60 days after your last expiration date, at which point you may transfer your assets to a non-Intel stock account of your choice.
  •  You must contact E*TRADE with instructions for handling any assets remaining in your employee account within 18 months of your termination date. You may want to set up a personal retail account at E*TRADE or transfer your assets to another broker. Note that country restrictions may apply, and fees associated with a retail account will become your responsibility.
  • Keep Intel apprised of any change of address should you move within 18 months of your termination date by calling Get HR Help at 800-238-0486. After that period of time, update your address directly with E*TRADE.

The Intel Store is where you can buy any of the many new Intel logo items, purchase gift certificates, and check out the service awards.
