What We Do

The Benefits team enriches the Mason work environment by providing exemplary customer service to Faculty and Staff. Our goal is to assist employees through their Mason careers from their first day of work to retirement with detailed new hire benefits orientations, advising on plan options, and facilitating benefit changes, leave coordination, workers’ compensation and the transition into retirement. We collaborate with other HR/Payroll teams to accurately and thoroughly communicate Mason benefit plans and options. The Benefits team also advocates on behalf of Mason faculty and staff to the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Human Resource Management when benefits enrollment issues arise. The Benefits team supports Investment Policy Committee efforts by coordinating approved fund change and communication plans.

If you have any questions, would like more specific information about employee benefits, or would like to schedule an appointment to discuss your benefits in greater detail, contact us.
