Eligibility and Cost
The benefits you are eligible for depend on your employment status at UBC.
If you are a new hire, it is important to know when your coverage for specific UBC benefits becomes effective. This will allow you to ensure the continuity of your coverage between what is provided by UBC and what is provided by the group plan you hold with your former employer or your own individual coverage.
Your dependents, including your spouse, parents and children, may also be eligible for benefits through your employment at UBC. To learn about which benefit programs your dependents qualify for, please visit our Dependents page.
