The best way to ensure you have the resources available is to have the protection of a sound health benefits program. Ohio University is dedicated to providing such a program to eligible Faculty and Staff.

Our benefits program is designed to provide protection and support for you and your family when there is illness, disability, or death. We believe it is a comprehensive program that represents an important part of your total compensation.

Core benefits include health, vision, dental/orthodontia insurance, prescription drug benefits, employee and dependent  life insurance, and short and long-term disability coverage. Health and dependent day care flexible spending accounts are also available.

Generous paid time off benefits including sick leave, vacation leave, and parental leave are also available.

Retirement benefits include access to the State of Ohio pension plans, a 401(a) alternative plan, and voluntary 403(b) and 457(b) retirement plans.  See the retirement section for more details.
