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

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.
