Faculty Handbook: Faculty Benefits

Faculty insurance benefits

Information about employee benefits such as group medical and dental insurance and life insurance can be obtained from the University Policies and Procedures:

Premium contribution requirements are payroll deducted. Although most faculty members are contracted for an academic year of nine months and/or summer session(s), premium contributions are taken on a 12-month basis. If salary is paid on a 10-month basis, the normal monthly premium deductions are prorated to accommodate the 12-month benefit protection. Benefit coverage for a faculty member in his/her terminal year expires the final day of the terminal contract month.

Copies of the relevant benefit plan are available through the Department of Human Resources.
