Seminars on wide range of benefits offered

The Office of Human Resources offers a comprehensive benefits program to University faculty and staff, the two anchors being the health insurance and retirement savings plans.

As such, most employee seminars are designed to present and discuss the details of these two important and complex benefits.

However, there are several other important benefits plans of which University employees need to be aware.

To help employees become better informed, the human resources office is offering brown-bag seminars to review and discuss the following benefit plans:

• Health Care Flex Spending

• Child Care Flex Spending

• Term Life Insurance

• Variable Universal Life Insurance

• Long Term Disability Insurance

• Long Term Care Insurance

• Tuition Assistance

• MO$T Program

Included in the seminars will be covering the eligibility criteria, coverage options, tax savings and special features in these plans.

Also, determining whether employees are maximizing their individual returns on the University’s benefits investment is on the agenda.

Thomas W. Lauman, director of benefits, will present sessions from noon-1 p.m. The schedule is:

• April 27, Hilltop Campus, Simon Hall, Room 109;

• April 28, West Campus, Library Conference Center, Room A/B; and

• April 29, Medical Campus, McDonnell Science Building, Erlanger Auditorium.

Reservations are not required; food is not provided; and attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch.
