Your Seattle University Benefits

The university provides a comprehensive set of benefits for eligible faculty/staff and their families.  Certain benefits are automatically provided with the university covering 100% of the benefit cost.  Many of the insurance benefits (medical, dental, supplemental life insurance and more) are optional to you and require that you complete an enrollment and often contribute toward the benefit's premium cost.
