UConn offers optional group insurance plans that can complement 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.
- A Universal Life Insurance Plan offered by Cigna.
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.
