Catastrophic Leave Donation Form


How Your Donations are Used

Donated hours are an irrevocable pledge. Donations are not taken from your account until the employee uses them. It could be several months to a year from when we receive your donation form until the leave is used. In some cases, an individual may not need all hours donated; therefore, your donations may not be used. In these situations, you will receive an email notification from University Benefits to inform you of the outcome of your donated time. When the person's eligibility for the program ends and the hours are no longer considered pledged, you will receive a confirmation email about your time donated.
