The total comp estimator tool estimates total compensation, not an actual dollar amount, for benefits-eligible faculty and staff employees based on annual pay and retirement plan elections entered into the estimator. Therefore, the estimated total compensation should only be used as a guide and is not guaranteed or represented as true, complete, or correct.
Independent contractors and employees who are not benefits-eligible should not use this tool (e.g., students, House Staff, fellows, adjunct faculty).
Voluntary Benefits for Regular Faculty and Staff
Employees who are hired in a temporary position may enroll in the health and dental insurance plans if:
- the employee is anticipated to work 50 percent or greater time,
- and be appointed for at least six months.
