UCSD Benefits
UCSD staff members enjoy a compensation package that far exceeds the value of their base salaries alone. With features including outstanding health and welfare benefits and programs for a secure retirement, UCSD benefits are considered among the finest in higher education and begin on your first day of work.

Below are just some of the benefits of working at UCSD:
  • Health Insurance: Allows employees to choose coverage that best meets their needs.
  • Dental Insurance: Covers a wide range of dental services with your choice of two plans.
  • Vacation/Holidays: UCSD provides a minimum of 15 vacation days per year based on years of service and 13 paid holidays a year.
  • Vision Plan: Offers annual checkups, corrective lenses, and frames.
  • Life Insurance: Provides University-paid life insurance and the option to supplement.
  • UC Retirement Plan: This is a defined benefit plan for eligible UC employees. This means your benefits are determined by a formula including age, salary, and years of service. The plan provides you with monthly retirement income, or you can choose to take a lump sum cash out. You can also choose to supplement your retirement through a 403(b) or 457(b) plan.
