Benefits complement pay and provide assistance to our employees through any stage of their life. Benefits we offer include affordable medical, dental and vision coverage, flexible spending plans, generous paid time off for staff, disability, employee assistance program, life insurance and superb retirement savings plans options.
UA strives to build an environment that supports the health and safety of our employees by providing other benefits for our employees that include discounts from local restaurants and businesses, carpooling programs, wellness programs and a Faculty – Staff Clinic at The University Medical Center. These benefits add value to employees’ total compensation and provide convenient opportunities for the well-being of UA faculty, staff and retirees.
Important IRS Requirements – Employees will be receiving emails from the HR Service Center notifying them that the University is missing Social Security Numbers for dependent(s) with health care coverage through the University. The request is legitimate and is resulting from IRS regulations related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). If you received such an email, click on the UA-BENEFITFOCUS “Log In Here” button above to log in to our secure website and enter the Social Security Number(s) of all dependents who are on our health plans. Please also take this time to verify and update birthdates and any other demographic information of your dependents.
If you have questions, please contact the HR Service Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 348-7732.
