Employee Benefits


Washington and Lee offers an extensive range of health care and life insurance benefits, retirement options, educational assistance programs, and other programs and services to our staff and faculty. Because we want to attract and retain the highest quality staff, we are committed to providing a competitive benefit package.

Enrollment in some benefit plans is not automatic. Although Human Resources makes an effort to notify or remind an employee when they become eligible to enroll in a particular benefit plan, it is the employee's responsibility to enroll in a timely manner. Please consult with Human Resources should any questions arise concerning eligibility for or status in a plan.

Although it is the intent of the University to continue the benefit plans described in this section, the University reserves the right to modify, amend, or terminate any benefit plan, with or without notice. The summaries included below describe only the major features of the plans. In the event of any inconsistency between these summaries and the legal plan documents, the legal plan documents (located in Human Resources) will govern.
