Employee Benefits Information Session

Dalhousie faculty and staff are invited to attend a virtual benefits information session​, which will cover benefits information for all regular employee groups, as well as grant paid and associated employees, and post-doctoral fellows. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the benefits available to you as an employee and ask any questions you may have. There will be time at the end of the session to fill out benefits paperwork and submit them electronically.

While originally developed for new hires, this benefits information session will also be valuable to existing employees who want a benefits refresher.

Closer to the event date, you will receive a Microsoft Teams meeting invite for the event. We will also pre-screen registrants to ensure benefits eligibility and send along links to the paperwork applicable to your employee group.

Topics covered during this session include the following:

    ​Where can I find benefits information?

    Benefits enrolment & eligible dependants

    Mandatory benefits & optional benefits

    Getting to know your health spending account 

    Submitting a claim

    Life changes

    Other benefits & resources 

    Forms checklist

    ​Dedicated time for filling out paperwork and asking questions
