New Faculty, Staff, and LiUNA BU Members

If you are a new faculty or staff member, you will receive an email from Benefits, inviting you to elect or waive benefits. You must take action to enroll or waive within 30 days, or you will be enrolled automatically with individual coverage in the CareFirst BCBS Core PPO Plan.

Learn more about making your enrollment decisions.

To help you make informed decisions about your benefits, Benefits & Worklife offers New Employee Benefits Orientations live via Zoom on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, as well as a pre-recorded orientation that you can watch on-demand.
