As shared in the FY21 Budget Update, effective October 1, 2020 the University will suspend all employer contributions to the retirement plan. The suspension of employer contributions is the result of the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on this year’s budget and anticipated to be in place through June 30, 2021.
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.
