Benefits & Pension
Group health, dental, life, and LTD benefits are the responsibility of Payroll. This includes liaison with benefit carriers, group insurance policy interpretations and alterations, claims, as well as the initial application for employee coverage, terminations, and changes to employee and dependent coverage and beneficiaries.
Working closely with the Payroll staff we ensure we respond quickly to changes in coverage and that the premiums deducted from employees are correct. This area is also responsible for the notifications and premium collections for continuing term employees and employees on other types of leaves to ensure that appropriate benefit coverage is kept in place during the leave period.
A comprehensive onboarding program is in place for our employees. The onboarding session includes information about benefits, pay, employee rewards, and campus resources.
