NEW Grad Employees

Wecome to UMass!  We offer free dental & vision insurance, as well as gym and childcare reimbursements, and an array of optional extra benefits to eligible grad employees!

If you're an incoming graduate student employee for academic year 20222-23, and did not earn wages in a GEO-eligible position during 2021-22, your earliest start date for dental and vision coverage is September 1, 2022.


You'll receive an enrollment email for plan year 2022-21 at your UMass email address by August 15, 2022, the date that online enrollment begins. The deadline for Sept 1 coverage is 9/15/22 (coverage will be retroactive as long as you apply by 9/15). View the eligibility guidelines to ensure you will be eligible. 

RETURNING Grad Employees

Welcome back! Remember, grad employees need to re-enroll for benefits each year. The deadline is September 15, 2022. We've made the application even more streamlined this year for returning employees--if nothing has changed for you, you can skip through the application to the signature step in approx. 30 seconds!
