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 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. You can also read a summary of benefits

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 do a Beneficiary Review annually, or following a Qualifying Life Event such as marriage or divorce.

Authorization for Release of Employee Benefits Information allows employees to designate who can discuss their benefits related information with the Employee Benefits Staff. Employees can designate multiple people to discuss all their benefits related information or only specific areas. If an employee does not submit an Authorization for Release of Information Form, the Benefits Staff cannot discuss any information with anyone other than the employee.
