Other Benefits


What to Consider

Health Plan
Dental Plan Option 1
Group Term Life Insurance
Prescription Drug

Your coverage will continue at no cost to you. You may continue dependent coverage only for those named dependents who are enrolled as of your last day of pay. Note: You cannot add dependents to your coverage while you are on disability unless dependents qualify under the provisions of the university's commercial transfer policy. If you remove dependents from your coverage, you will not be eligible to re-enroll them at a later date.

University Basic Retirement Savings Plan

If you are enrolled in the Basic Retirement Savings Plan or if you are a compulsory Basic Retirement Savings Plan participant, the Plan will provide Basic Retirement Savings Plan contributions as a percentage of your covered base salary at the time of your disability, to the extent it is legally permitted. Additional contributions cannot be made under the provisions of this Plan.

Dental Option 2 and 3
Group Legal

You are eligible to continue these benefits and must pay the full employee contribution for them yourself; however, if you withdraw from these benefits, you may not be able to re-enroll at a later date.
