By understanding your benefits options, you can make the most out of them.

The University of Wisconsin offers a comprehensive benefits package to meet the diverse needs of our community. The University contributes towards the cost of several benefit plans, which is a valuable piece of your total compensation. Other plans offer favorable group rates and convenient payroll deduction to employees. Some health and life insurance premiums are taken from your salary on a pre-tax basis, saving you money.

The Annual Benefits Enrollment (ABE) period is from October 2- October 27, 2017.
