Email Forwarding Service


Members of the UCSD Retirement Association can take advantage of our FREE email forwarding service. Email forwarding allows you to use your personal email account to receive messages from your email address.

For Health Sciences retirees who join the UCSD Retirement Association, the association will assist in obtaining the issuance of a new email address (often just with the insertion of a middle initial), which is then eligible for email forwarding. As the previous email account will not forward, the health sciences retiree may establish an auto-responder message on the former email, which provides the new email address. This is required per UC San Diego Health Policy No. MCP 18.1.  


Setting up your UCSD email forwarding account

  1. You must first become a member of the UCSD Retirement Association. The email forwarding service is only available to current members of the Association.
  2. Upon joining the association, you will receive a Retirement Association member packet that includes the email forwarding setup form (PDF) and a form to obtain a UCSD affiliate Campus Card.
  3. Go to the Student Business Services office to get your affliate Campus Card. Be sure to bring $15 and photo identification (passport, driver's license, or state ID card).
  4. Complete the email forwarding setup form and return it to: UCSD Retirement Association/ 9500 Gilman Drive, Dept. 0020/ La Jolla, CA 92093-0020.

The Retirement Association will notify you when your account is established.

If you need help setting up Gmail, send us an email or give us a call at (858) 534-4724. Please keep your email address current with the Retirement Association.

Note: The University reserves the right to assign email privileges as well as to prohibit or revoke those privileges as it deems necessary.
