I only work through the academic year. Do my benefits continue through the summer?

Yes, generally, appointments for academic year employees are structured to continue through mid-August, so medical, dental, vision, life and disability coverage will continue through the summer.  Your paycheck deductions during the academic year are accelerated to cover your costs during the summer when you do not receive a paycheck. If you are separating from employment, all benefits end on your last day worked. Consult your supervisor or contact the HR Service Center at 315.443.4042 if you have questions about your status or benefit coverage during the summer.
