New Employee Information

Welcome to Washington State University and congratulations on your new position!  This page was created to assist newly hired employees with their benefits enrollment.

2017 Benefit Overview for Faculty and AP

2017 Benefit Overview for Classified Staff

You will receive a packet from Human Resource Services (HRS) with the specific benefit booklets and enrollment forms you will be eligible for.  This site contains general information that is applicable to the majority of our new employees, but may not meet all new employee scenarios.  You may also access electronic booklets and enrollment forms through the Public Employment Benefits Board (PEBB) website, or you may bring a copy of your Personnel Action Form to HRS to obtain your benefits packet sooner.  You may also visit the following link for the PEBB Benefits Enrollment Guide.

IMPORTANT: You must complete and return forms to HRS by the due date to receive coverage, or you will lose certain rights and options.  Additionally, Valid Dependent Verification Documents are required if adding a spouse/state-registered domestic partner and/or children.

Listed below are the due dates and links to additional information on each benefit.
