Benefits: Facilitate Planning for the Future
The Benefits of Belonging

UC Riverside offers a comprehensive and competitive array of benefit choices. Employment benefits are an important part of your compensation package.

Most UC employees are eligible for benefits, but your benefits package depends on the length of your appointment, how many hours you work, and your appointment type. Retirees are eligible based on their age and years of service credit at retirement. Learn more about benefits eligibility.

If you are represented by a union, your compensation and benefits are governed by your union’s contract.

Be sure to visit our Benefit's pages to learn about the benefits the University provides, depending on your type of appointment.
