Our generous benefits package makes up a large portion of your total overall compensation. SIUE provides comprehensive benefits and a variety of choices to best fit you and your family's needs.
SIUE is committed to providing quality, affordable, and accessible medical coverage for you and your family. Benefits include:
Retirement and Financial Planning
SIUE offers an excellent retirement package to help you plan for the future. As an employee, you will participate in the State Universities Retirement System (SURS), rather than Social Security. In addition to your retirement contributions, the State of Illinois contributes a percentage of your salary into your retirement account. SURS offers several choices for retirement plans.
Employee and Dependent Education Benefits
One of the most valued benefits of employment at SIUE is the education benefit offered to you and your dependents. As an employee, you may be eligible for a full waiver of tuition, exclusive of fees, to continue your education. SIUE also offers a 50 percent waiver of tuition to your dependents if you have provided at least seven years of service. This benefit, which is transferrable to any public university in the State of Illinois, will be extended to the dependent for up to 130 credit hours or until he/she reaches the age 25.
Specific leave eligibility and accrual rates are specific to each position and employment classification, but most employees earn 12-25 vacation days and at least 10 sick days per year. SIUE also provides holiday and administrative closure days, and other leave options including FMLA, jury duty, funeral leave and military leave.
Life and Supplemental Insurance
SIUE helps you plan for the unexpected by offering flexible spending programs as well as a selection of supplemental insurance options:
Other Programs and Services
