Employee Benefits

You will be eligible for benefits that vary based on your appointment as a Senior Fellow or a Senior Fellow Trainee.   Your offer letter will specify which initial appointment you are being given.

As a Senior Fellow, you are a University of Washington employee and will be eligible for University benefits including a medical and dental plan, term life insurance coverage, long-term disability insurance, a retirement plan and various optional employee-paid benefits.

As a Senior Fellow Trainee your benefits will vary based on your funding; however, at a minimum you will be eligible for University benefits including a medical and dental plan, term life insurance coverage, long-term disability insurance and various optional trainee-paid benefits.

If your appointment effective date is other than the first of the month, or the first business day of the month, medical coverage will be effective the first day of the following month.  A comprehensive description of UW benefits is available at http://www.washington.edu/admin/benefits/.
