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. There is also a webpage containing all New Hire Benefits Forms.

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
