If you transfer from one UW System institution to another, your benefits will automatically transfer with you (the University of Wisconsin is considered one employer).
Your leave balances will transfer also. However, vacation carryover and paid leave bank hours may or may not be accepted by your new institution (policies vary by institution). If the hours do not transfer to the new institution, they will be paid out to you before you transfer.
If you also change employment category, refer to:
- Change from University Staff to Faculty, Academic Staff or Limited web page
- Change from Faculty, Academic Staff or Limited to University Staff web page

If you also move due to a transfer, refer to:
- Family Changes – Name or Address Change. You may be able to change your health plan and/or your Dependent Day Care FSA. The link will also explain how to update your address with the benefit plans.
Remember to review and update your beneficiary designations when you have a life event to make sure that your benefits are paid according to your wishes. Benefit plans that have beneficiary designations include life insurance plans, retirement plans and the health savings account.
