Employee Benefits

The CSU offers a wide range of benefits to eligible employees. Much of the information is available online. If you still have questions, contact the Richard Francis ext. 6730 with the Benefits Unit.


Benefit eligibility and the type of benefit programs you receive are based on the type of hire appointment and position. Your initial hire letter will advise you on the type of benefits you are eligible to receive. You should also receive a benefit packet with your appointment letter.

Your benefits begin the first of the month following your date of hire, as long as the Benefits Office receives your enrollment documents by the end of the month that you are hired. Note for Faculty: Faculty starting in the Fall are eligible for benefit coverage effective October 1. Faculty starting in the Spring are eligible for benefit coverage effective March 1. 

Please complete your enrollment documents within 60 days of your hire date in order to avoid a mandatory 90 day waiting period. To enroll, complete the Benefits Enrollment/Change Worksheet and submit to the Benefits Department/HR, MSR320.

For specific benefit programs, please refer to the HR website and click on Employee Benefits. For example, if you are an Administrative Support Assistant I, your position is covered by Unit 7, Clerical/Admin Support; refer to your appointment letter. See Benefit and Leave Summary.
