Helping employees maximize their potential


The quality of faculty, staff and administrators is the cornerstone of UC's ongoing success, and UC is committed to providing competitive compensation and benefits for all UC employees. As a public institution, UC is also committed to being transparent about its compensation practices.


UC Riverside offers a comprehensive and competitive array of benefit choices. Employment benefits are an important part of your compensation package.

Most UC employees are eligible for benefits, but your benefits package depends on the length of your appointment, how many hours you work, and your appointment type. Retirees are eligible based on their age and years of service credit at retirement.

Be sure to visit our Benefit's pages to learn about the benefits the University provides, depending on your type of appointment.
