New Hire Benefits Orientation

New Hire Benefits Orientation

As a new employee, you will have 31 days, from your full-time date of hire, to enroll in benefits. Coverage will become effective as of the first of the month following, or coinciding with, full-time date of hire.

Human Resources’ Benefits team is hosting semi-monthly programs via Zoom to provide important information about the benefits available to you as a new full-time employee.

The Reference Materials section provides more detailed material, including medical/vision and dental plan summaries and per paycheck premiums, links to the enrollment forms, and other benefits-related information. Please review (and/or print) the Reference Materials prior to beginning the New Employee Orientation Program.

If you have questions about the contents of the program or need further information, please contact the University Benefits office at (914) 923-2828 (extension 22828) or at
