Depending on your eligibility, the university offers healthcare coverage, flexible spending accounts, an employee assistance program, retirement benefits and more. Selecting your benefits is something we encourage you to think about before coming to campus. For the benefits options available to you, review the Benefits-in-Brief for regular (tenure-eligible) or fixed-term faculty members included with your faculty appointment letter.
For all benefit-eligible faculty, CMU uses an online benefits enrollment system called CMU Choices.
New hires and newly eligible faculty have 30 calendar days from their appointment date to select and enroll in benefits.
Benefits & Retirement Orientation website
provides helpful information about the benefits and retirement options including an online benefits orientation. The recorded presentations provide an overview of the different benefit options and vary in length from 2 to 10 minutes.
