SU is proud to offer you access to quality and comprehensive benefits, and we encourage you to take full advantage of the great options available to you. We urge you to review your benefits, consider your options, and make the choices that best serve you and your family.
You can find helpful information regarding the benefits available to you by clicking on the benefit program options listed to the left.
Bargaining unit members are eligible for the Modified Benefits plan when they have completed the probation period and are teaching at least 3 credit hours in both the Fall and Spring semester.
The University conducts an Open Enrollment annually, when part-time instructors may change their benefits. Outside of the Open Enrollment period, no changes may be made except in the case of a qualifying family status change.
Should you have any questions about the benefit options, please feel free to contact our Human Resources Service Center at 315-443-4042.
The web pages summarize your Syracuse University benefit options. Every effort has been made to ensure this information is accurate. However, the programs are governed by legal documents and insurance contracts. If there is any difference between the information on these web pages and the official documents and contracts, the official documents and contracts will rule. Our benefits are governed by current laws and operated according to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations. We will notify you if changes in plans are necessary to comply with the law or with IRS regulations. Employees electing to participate in the SU benefit plans are bound by the terms of the governing Plan documents. If you have any questions regarding the plans, you may request a copy of the Plan document from the Plan Administrator by contacting the HR Service Center at the number indicated at the end of this page. As is the case with all benefits offered by SU, (1) the Plan Administrator has the discretionary authority to interpret the terms of the Plan and such interpretation will be binding on all interested parties to the fullest extent permitted by law, and (2) the University reserves the right to modify or terminate the Plan at any time.
