Benefits and Retirement



Florida Atlantic University offers benefits to Faculty, Administrative Managerial Professional (AMP), and Support Personnel (SP) employees. These benefits may include paid annual and sick leave, holidays, state and university sponsored insurance programs, and retirement. OPS assignments MAY BE eligible for state sponsored benefits, including health insurance. OPS benefit eligibility is determined by People First.

New Faculty, Administrative Managerial Professional (AMP) and Support Personnel (SP) employees have only the FIRST 60 CALENDAR DAYS OF EMPLOYMENT to enroll in the insurance plans. After the initial new hire enrollment period, employees may only enroll or make changes to their coverage during the annual Open Enrollment period in the fall. You may be allowed to make certain changes to your coverage if you experience a Qualifying Status Change (QSC) event (e.g. marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, etc.). You must notify the People First Service Center within 60 days of the QSC.

Employees are eligible for health insurance coverage on the first day of the month following their date of hire. However, the effective date of coverage will depend on the date the enrollment is completed and the required premiums are paid. The effective dates of coverage are always the first of a month and no coverage will be updated with the insurance carrier until premiums are received by People First.
