Benefits are an important part of your total compensation package at UMass Lowell, and they can help provide peace of mind for you and your family in almost every area of life.
Here in Massachusetts, we have a proud history of investing in our employees by providing a full range of coverage choices including medical and disability, reimbursement and savings plans, and retirement savings options including an attractive pension plan.
We urge you to take time to carefully read your copy of the Group Insurance Plan (GIC) Benefit Decision Guide as it explains the many plan options and coverage levels available to you.
