Supplemental Benefits

As a State employee, you have access not only to health care and dental benefits, but also many other supplemental benefits.
You can save for retirement, secure life, auto and home insurance, and protect you and your family with long-term care and disability coverage. Those are just a few of the benefits to consider. Review these benefits on the State of CT Supplemental Benefits web-page.

Additional Supplemental Benefits for UConn Employees

As a complement to State employee supplemental benefits, UConn offers additional insurance options. For information on UConn supplemental benefits and vendor partner contacts review the information below


UConn offers optional group insurance plans that can compliment the insurance benefits the State plans provide. Currently, the University offers three group plans:

  • A Short-Term Disability plan offered by The Hartford.
  • A Long-Term Disability Plan offered by Aetna. Please Note: Employees who elect the Alternate Retirement Plan (ARP) are automatically covered for Long Term Disability Insurance through Prudential. For plan details view the Long Term Disability Coverage Plan Document.
  • A Universal Life Insurance Plan offered by Aetna.

Detailed information regarding these plans, including enrollment can be found on the College Benefits Group website. The College Benefits Group is UConn’s chosen insurance broker for these plans. The main contact for the UConn account is Charles Dyson.

Please Note: You can elect to participate in these benefits at any time, but for certain insurance products, such as short-term disability and long-term disability, if you do not sign up for these products when you are first eligible and decide to enroll later, you may be subject to evidence of insurability guidelines.
