The Benefits of Belonging

UC benefits are acknowledged to be among the finest in higher education. As a UC employee, you'll enjoy an outstanding benefits package, including comprehensive health and welfare insurance plans protecting you and your family, an attractive pension plan, generous leave provisions and optional retirement savings opportunities. You will retain your benefits and employment seniority if you transfer anywhere within the UC system.

The UCR Human Resources Office helps faculty, staff and their dependents sort through the options and offers workshops on benefits issues, insurance and retirement counseling and other much-needed services.

You also have access to the systemwide At Your Service  human resources and benefits website. This site allows you to keep track of your UC Retirement Plan benefits, view your health and insurance enrollments and  find information about your health and insurance benefits.
