Benefits Orientation

The University of California offers a full range of health and retirement savings plans, including a generous pension plan. UC’s benefits are recognized as being among the best available, representing as much as 40 percent of your total annual compensation, depending on your type of appointment.

Generally, Benefits Orientation is held every other Wednesday from 8:30am-11:30 am, the day after Organizational New Employee Orientation/On-boarding. Your Onboarding Specialist will provide the specific location.

The University of California’s compensation program is comprised of salary, generous health and welfare benefits and retirement benefits and savings plans. To calculate your total compensation package, use UC’s Total Compensation Calculator.

UC San Diego Health also offers other local benefits, such as employee discounts to local business, insurance, bank and credit union discounts, wellness programs, employee assistance programs, and many other benefits and resources.
