What you should know...

  • Lafayette College offers various benefit programs as part of a full-time employee total compensation package. Our compensation package includes medical, dental, life insurance, retirement, flexible spending accounts, paid and unpaid time off, disability insurance, worker’s compensation insurance, and travel accident insurance. All full-time employees (minimum of .75 FTE) are eligible for coverage under the College’s benefits programs beginning on the first day of the month following, or concurrent with, the first day of employment. Enrollment in these plans is NOT automatic. Participation cannot begin without completing the online enrollment. Once enrolled, the Open Enrollment period is the only time during which you can change your benefit plan elections or add/delete dependents without having to demonstrate a Life Status/Event Change. There is no restriction on making changes during the Open Enrollment period. Open Enrollment changes are effective Jan. 1.
