Welcome to Employee Benefits
West Virginia University has been selected the nation’s fifth best employer for workers aged 50 and more by the AARP in its 10th annual ranking.
West Virginia University provides an extremely competitive benefits package to its benefits-eligible employees. The benefits, programs, and services offered are a sizable amount of an employee’s overall compensation and important factors in encouraging a healthy work-life balance at WVU.
The Employee Benefits staff provides detailed information on the benefits plans offered by the University, allowing employees to select options best suited to their needs and the needs of their covered dependents.
The annual Open Enrollment period, held in the spring of each year, provides an excellent opportunity for employees to review their benefits and make any necessary changes or adjustments.
Employees are encouraged to take time to periodically do a Beneficiary Review on an annual basis, or following a Qualifying Life Event such as marriage or divorce, is also recommended. Please use the PEIA Required Documentation Guide as reference when making changes to your coverage.
