Benefits Orientation


SUNY Cortland offers employees a competitive and comprehensive benefits package.  To help you get a better understanding of the benefits available to you, the Human Resource Employee Benefits Office provides online orientations as a general guide.  Benefit descriptions, eligibility requirements, effective dates, and costs are detailed along with forms.

Select the appropriate union/bargaining unit from the left side navigation and proceed with the orientation. 
What union/bargaining unit am I in?

  • UUP (faculty, librarians, non-teaching professionals)
  • CSEA (office assistant, cleaner, administrative assistant, maintenance assistant, facilities operations, laborer etc)
  • M/C Professional (vice president, dean, associate vice president)
  • PEF (nurse 1, maintenance supervisor 2 and 3)
  • NYSPBA and NYSCOPBA – University Police and dispatch

You will receive a new employee package and an invitation to attend an orientation session where we will explain your benefits, give you the opportunity to ask questions, and allow time for you to complete your benefit enrollment forms.
