The City University of New York offers a comprehensive benefits package to meet the needs of its employees and their families, including health, welfare, retirement and other programs. Your benefits program is based on your category of staff. As your needs evolve over time, you will be able to make certain changes to your coverage during the Annual Transfer Period, or within 30 days of a qualifying event.
You will receive an invitation by email to a Benefits Orientation, which will explain in detail the benefits options available to you. Click on the link below for an overview of the benefits programs that CUNY offers, and come prepared with any questions to the Benefits Orientation.
If you have additional questions following the Benefits Orientation, please contact your Benefits Office at 718.997.5765.
Please note:
