Benefits for UNC Employees

The University provides a wide range of benefits for its employees.  Although many of these benefits are shared by all employee classes, some are determined by the employee's position classification (i.e. Faculty, Professional Administrator, or State Classified staff) and full or part-time status.

Medical, Leave and Retirement: Look under Classified, Faculty or Professional Administrative Staff for further details on medical, leave, and retirement benefits.

New Benefits Highlight

Beginning Spring of 2022, UNC will pay for the first year of SAVI - the Student Loan Forgiveness Assistance program.
