The following are links to websites and information to help you estimate the total compensation package.
Benefits Available to all Eligible Employees
Our benefits are extensive, providing comprehensive opportunities from health care, retirement, life and other insurances, to wellness programs assisting with healthy lifestyle decision-making.
MSU is part of the Montana University System Benefits Plan. Our medical and dental plan ("CHOICES") is self-funded. It pays its own costs, sets the plan structure for its members, and hires Third Party Administrators (TPAs) to handle claims. CHOICES has been designed with the flexibility to meet the varying needs of a diverse work force. Eligible employees (0.5 FTE, permanent and fixed term, with six months' continuous service) have opportunity to match the benefits offered to their individual and family situation through our annual CHOICES enrollment.
