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. A summary of the plans offered can be found here.
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. See the current year's benefit rates.
Eligible dependents include legal spouse, same or opposite sex domestic partner (Domestic Partner Information & Certification Form); dependent children (as defined by the IRS) until the end of the month in which they reach age 26.

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.
