A Message from John Whelan

Annual Benefits Enrollment is just around the corner, from November 27 through December 8. Now is the time to review your current benefits and consider any changes you’d like to make to get the most out of your benefits package.

In addition to comprehensive medical, dental, and vision benefits, the University offers a menu of impressive Signature Benefits that you can enjoy anytime—no need to take action during annual enrollment. Your full benefit offering includes Personal Wellness, Financial Wellness, and WorkLife resources designed to support you and your family through multiple life stages.

Did you know that you can…

Enroll in a Health Savings Account

Eligible Yale faculty and staff members can enroll in Aetna Smart Care High Deductible Health Plan with a Health Savings Account (HSA). Once opened, Yale will make an annual deposit to your HSA account. You will also receive accident protection for you and your covered dependents — at no extra cost.

Get Tuition Costs Reimbursed

Obtain partial reimbursement towards degree and non-degree granting programs meeting specific criteria. You can submit your tuition reimbursement claims for non-Yale courses for processing through Workday.

Open a Flexible Spending Account

To cover out-of-pocket costs for health or dependent care, you must enroll or re-enroll each year in a health care or dependent care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) during annual benefits enrollment. Contributions are deducted from your paycheck before taxes are calculated.

Make Changes to Your 403b  Retirement Savings Anytime

You can review and make changes to your 403b retirement savings portfolio through TIAA’s website at any time — not just during annual enrollment. Schedule a 1:1 consultation or register to attend a workshop through the website.

Build a Healthier Lifestyle

As Yale’s preferred provider, Yale Health provides access to a unique model of patient-centered care and service to its members, all located under one roof – our nationally accredited Primary Care Medical Home. By taking advantage of Being Well at Yale and other free online programs like Yale Healthcasts and Emmi videos, members can create a more balanced and healthier lifestyle.

Save Money and Enjoy Discounts

Benefit eligible faculty and staff can explore a range of services and discount programs through the Yale Advantages program. Yale Advantages benefits follow you into retirement. Enrollment (or cancellation) in MetLife Legal Plan may occur only during your yearly annual benefits enrollment.
