​Join us at ESO's Annual Work/Life "Boo Bash" Event on Tuesday, October 30 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Special Events Center to enjoy carnival snacks, visit with work/life vendors and enter for a chance to win "Spooktacular" door prizes. This event is open to all UHD employees.

Stop by and learn about the many resources, programs and services available to UHD employees. See the vendor list for the attendees at this year's event. 

As a UHD employee, you and your eligible dependents have access to a comprehensive benefits package comprised of several optional insurance plans designed to fit your needs.

Optional employee benefits include:
  • ​Health and dental Insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Disability insurance
  • A supplemental retirement program
  • Accident, cancer, critical illness and hospital protection plans
  • Universal life with long-term care

In addition, you may be eligible for automatic state benefits such as vacation, sick leave, paid holidays, various leave programs, a retirement program and longevity pay.

If you are a new employee, the New Employee Benefits Guide provides the information you need to make the most of your comprehensive State of Texas benefits package.

If you are a faculty or staff member working 20+ hours a week for at least 4.5 months (within a fiscal year), you may be eligible for select UHD benefits. Also, if you are an employee with a 12-month appointment or who works an average of at least 30 hours per week, you may be eligible for UHD benefits as well.
