The University of Cincinnati offers a wide array of benefits for you and your family. Eligibility is based upon classification, FTE, and other criteria.  Eligible employees are able to select from various levels of coverage in each benefit plan.

Changes can be made to your elections upon being hired, during open enrollment in November of each year, or if you've had a life event that is a qualified status change.
