Virtual benefits information session series

Posted by Human Resources on March 31, 2021 in Human Resources

All faculty and staff are invited to attend the first in a series of virtual benefits information sessions on April 7, 10 to 11:30 a.m. that will cover benefits information for all regular employee groups, as well as Grant-Paid and associated employees, and Post-Doctoral Fellows. 

This is an opportunity to learn more about the benefits available to you as an employee and ask any questions. 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.

Register today.

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

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