The University's overall benefit plan has long been recognized and valued because of its comprehensiveness and competitiveness in the market.
The University provides eligible employees with an array of benefit plans that promote health and help you build financial resources for retirement.
When you enroll in Flexible Benefits (health, life, disability insurance or flexible spending accounts), your elections will stay in effect until you experience a qualified change in family status or until annual (open) enrollment. For details about life events, such as birth of a child, adoption, or marriage, check the "Enrollment & Life Events" section of this site. You may review each benefit plan as well as details of your personal enrollment information in Web Views.
A number of benefits are administered on a pre-tax basis. Therefore, the University and participants must adhere to applicable IRS regulations in regard to enrollment, and in the case of retirement plans, annual contribution limits. We have included a brief snapshot of University benefits. However, please see the menu to the left for more detail about the individual options.
UDollars are provided by the University to assist in paying for the benefits you select. If the total cost of your options exceeds the UDollars paid by the University, employees pay the difference in pre-tax dollars. If the total cost benefits you select is less than the UDollars provided, employees receive the difference as taxable cash.
For full-time faculty and staff, the University’s health plan coverage contribution ranges from 86.75% to 96% of the total premium, depending on the plan and coverage tier. The University also pays the cost of "employee-only" vision, full cost of dental coverage, standard long-term disability, and life insurance equal to two times base annual salary.
The information contained on the website is not intended to replace the plan documents. If there are any discrepancies between the information on the website and the plan documents, the plan documents govern.
The following employee categories are eligible for coverage under the University’s health, dental, vision, life and disability insurance as well as tuition benefits and pension/retirement plans.
Who Can Use UD Benefits
Dependents (your spouse and your children up to age 26) may be covered under the health, dental, vision and dependent life insurance plans or apply for UD educational benefits.
This section provides the University’s holiday schedule and a brief description of some of our leave programs. Members of our faculty and staff employed under a collective bargaining agreement, should also refer to their respective agreement for details about specific bargained leave options. Some of the time off plans described here (e.g., vacation, holiday, personal and medical) are offered solely at the discretion of the University. Other leaves (e.g., military leaves, jury duty and Family and Medical Leave) are subject to federal and state law. Address specific questions about leaves to your Human Resource Manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
