We are excited to have you join our community and work towards the excellence of Eastern Illinois University! As a new hire, we want to make sure you have a successful transition to EIU. We've created a checklist for you as a resource to help you complete all the essential steps into your transition.
Be sure to contact Benefits Services to schedule your new hire orientation as soon as posible. New hires are given 30 days after their hire date to elect or opt out into the State insurance benefit. Failure to take action results in a default election of single coverage Quality Health Care Plan (Aetna), Quality Care Dental Plan (QCDP), and Basic Life. Changes in insurance coverage may only be made after a qualifying life event or during the Benefits Choice Period.
