At UNE we provide a variety of flexible benefits options to eligible full-time and half-time faculty and professional staff, allowing you to create a benefits program tailored to your individual needs. We offer medical, eye and dental plans, life insurance, flexible spending accounts, retirement plans, and other benefits for you to design your ideal package.
It is important to understand the benefits that are available to you. This guide summarizes information for your health and dental plans as well as other benefits UNE offers to benefits-eligible individuals.
- Domestic partners may be added to your medical and/or dental insurance plans if you meet specific requirements and complete a domestic partner affidavit with Human Resources. By adding a domestic partner to your plan(s), you will be charged the associated premium and will be taxed on that benefit.
- Please contact Human Resources within 30 days of any domestic partner status change. This includes becoming a newly-qualified domestic partner, the end of a domestic partner relationship, or becoming legally married. Contact the benefits and disability specialist with any questions regarding domestic partner coverage.
- Eligible dependents may be covered on your medical and/or dental insurance plans up to age 26. Coverage will end on the last day of the month during which they turn 26. If your dependent is turning 26 please contact HR to remove them from your plan(s) and reduce your monthly premium(s) as appropriate.
