Kenyon offers generous benefits options as part of the total compensation package for our dedicated employees. Benefits include health and dental plans, life insurance, flexible spending accounts, retirement options, and income protection in the event of a long-term disability.
Kenyon employees can also take advantage of tuition benefits for themselves, their spouse or domestic partner, and their dependents.
A benefits eligible employee is defined as an employee who works a minimum of 1,000 hours annually on a continuing basis in a regular, budgeted position.
Eligible dependents include legal spouse, same or opposite sex domestic partner (as defined); dependent children until the end of the month in which they reach age 26 (provided no other group coverage is available to him/her). You may add an eligible dependent to your medical or dental plan within 30 days of a qualifying event. You must notify Human Resources and complete an enrollment/change form.
Benefits are described here in a general manner. Your benefits are more fully described in their Summary Plan Documents, which can be accessed under Download Plan Descriptions. In case of a conflict or omission, the provisions of the Summary Plan Documents will govern. While Kenyon intends to continue each of the benefit plans currently offered, we reserve the right to terminate or amend any plan, at any time.
As an institution of higher education, our benefits plan year runs concurrently with our fiscal year. Kenyon's plan year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30 of each year.
Kenyon's medical and dental plans are part of the United Healthcare Network. You can find providers by using the UnitedHealthcare Options PPO Network Search. You may use any provider you choose, however in-network providers will provide a greater savings to your out of pocket costs.
The Affordable Care Act requires large employers to provide health care coverage to eligible employees beginning in 2015. An annual open enrollment period will coincide with our plan year and will take effect July 1, 2015.
