We are NYU.

Make Your Benefits Elections

Once you've reviewed your employee benefits options, you must elect your valuable NYU benefits within 31 days of your hire date on the Benefits Resource Center. This is your only window in which to choose certain benefits unless you experience a qualifying life event, such as a marriage, birth, or adoption.

If you have questions about your benefits, please contact PeopleLink, NYU's HR, benefits, and payroll service center, at askpeoplelink@nyu.edu or 212-992-LINK (5465).

Attend a Benefits Overview Session

Your onboarding specialist will provide the date, time, and location of an upcoming benefits overview session. At this optional but highly recommended event, new members of the NYU community gather to learn more about available benefits and have the opportunity to ask questions prior to making benefits elections.

Optional Benefits Overview: What Gets Covered

  • How, when, and where to make elections
  • Retirement program and enrollment
  • Medical plan options and contributions
  • Prescription drug coverage
  • Dental and vision plans
  • Life insurance
  • Tuition remission
  • Additional benefits (adoption assistance, LiveSmart wellness program, and more)
  • Q&A with representatives from the NYU Benefits Office

Seek Clarity and Compliance

At a large and complex global institution like NYU, there is much to learn in order to perform your role effectively, efficiently, and in line with both policies and the law. In addition to reviewing University policies and guidelines, discuss any role-specific training and resources with your supervisor during your first few weeks at NYU.

For all positions at NYU, the following trainings are required. Register for each now on NYUiLearn by searching by title or number, then complete the trainings:

  • online, within 30 days of start: Preventing Campus Violence (HAS 001A)
  • in-person, within 60 days of start: Preventing Harassment on Campus (OEO 101)
  • online, annually: Sexual Harassment Prevention (OEO 150)

Discover Connections and Culture

Despite NYU's size and complexity, your experience with colleagues will be more close, meaningful, and successful as you learn about and interface with our community. In your school or unit, in addition to making introductions, your supervisor will identify workgroups and committees in which you will contribute.

And across the University, there are affinity groups, the New Employee Connections event, and other resources to expand and enhance your knowledge, collegial relationships, work life integration, volunteerism, and more.

You've elected your valuable benefits and have become a key contributor in our community. It looks like you are ready to start thinking about your first year and beyond.
