Postdoctoral Employee (3252)

Postdocs who are paid through the campus payroll system will have their deductions for the contributions taken from their paychecks.

Postdoctoral Fellows (3253)

Postdocs who are paid through stipend will be billed monthly for their health benefits. Payment is not automatic; they will receive the bill from Garnett Powers within the first 2-weeks of the month. The initial bill is sent via US postal mail, and contains a first-time login password. Postdocs will need to enter the system to add an email address. Subsequent bills are emailed to the address indicated on their website. Please be sure to make prompt payments to avoid having your benefits revoked.
