Life and Disability

Syracuse University provides benefits-eligible employees with a base level of life insurance and income protection, with options to purchase supplemental coverage at favorable group rates. Premiums for supplemental coverage are deducted on an after-tax basis, making any benefits received non-taxable.


Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained within this website is accurate. However, the benefits are governed by legal documents (which, in certain circumstances, may include insurance contracts). If there is any difference between the information in this website and the official documents, the official documents will control. As is the case with all of Syracuse University’s employee benefit plans, the University reserves the right to modify or terminate these benefits at any time.
