Supplemental health and dental premium rates are now reflected as blended rates rather than single and family with the exception of premium rates for temporary academic agreements under 12 months. The blended rates are determined on the basis of the benefit costs across the academic and support staff groups without differentiating employees who are single or with dependents.

More information on the current benefit rates can be viewed on Benefits Overview. If you have any questions, please contact your Pension & Benefits Advisor in Human Resource Services.
