Initial Eligibility Information
To initially be eligible for benefits, the newly hired, recently reclassified employee or Postdoctoral Scholar’s appointment would be evaluated by UCPath using the following factors: appointment type, membership in UCRP, appointment percentage, and appointment duration. If the employee or postdoctoral scholar does not meet the criteria, the employee or postdoctoral scholar is not initially eligible for benefits. The complete list of benefit programs can be viewed here. UnifyHR will request documents to verify your family members' benefits eligibility. If you do not comply with the required document in the timeframe provided, your dependents will be de-enrolled.
Benefits elections are done on the UC Path website.
New Employee Benefits Orientation
There are two benefits orientations available for employees to attend:
New Postdoc Benefits Orientation - Designed for Postdocs
New Employee Benefits Orientation - Employees eligible for benefit packages:
(Please look at your offer letter or the UCPath portal Dashboard.)
*Benefits Orientations are subject to change times and dates.
Coming from or going to another UC location, your benefits may stay the same.
However, a new job classification may have completely different Benefits. For example, a postdoc reclassified to a Term or Career appointment will have different benefits and need to enroll in their new Benefits.
