UCSF offers its postdoctoral scholars a comprehensive benefits package. The Benefits Specialty Center encourages all postdoctoral scholars to attend a “New Employee Benefits Overview for Postdocs” to ensure postdoctoral scholars can make informed decisions about their benefits. New postdocs must complete their insurance enrollment within 31 days from their hire date or date of new eligibility.
Postdoctoral scholars who transition to a faculty appointment
A Postdoctoral Scholar who transitions to a faculty appointment must enroll in faculty/staff health benefits within their new 31 day PIE via the UCPath employee self-service portal.
The faculty/staff health benefits will become primary retro to the effective date of the new appointment. If the faculty appointment begins mid-month, special coordination may need to happen to ensure the use of PSBP benefits are discontinued. Please direct new faculty/staff to attend a Faculty/Staff Benefits Overview within their PIE to ensure they are equipped to make informed decisions about their new benefit options.
