Welcome to Benefit Services! 

Here you can explore all your benefit options as an Eastern Illinois University employee. The Department of Central Management Services (CMS) administers health insurance and other benefit plans.

Employees can elect and access their benefits at the MyBenefits portal.



Summer Meals Program

Did you know 43% of families in Charleston are on the food insecurity and poverty line? During the school year, children from these families are served breakfast and lunch at school but what happens when they are home during the summer? What can we do to help these children in our community? 

Human Resources will begin collecting cases of water to help the Summer Meals Program. The Summer Meals Program feeds over 100 children a week in 3 different Charleston locations. Your cases can be left on the table outside of Human Resources.  Don't want to walk across campus lugging a case of water?  Call or email Benefits and we would be glad to come pick it up.

Summer Step Challenge


This summer challenge beings June 11th to August 31st. Employees can compete individually or in a team. A grand prize will go to the individual and team with the most steps.

Email the Benefits Office at benefits@eiu.edu by June 8th for more information.
