Employee Benefits

Adjunct faculty and temporary employees are not eligible for health insurance benefits; however, you might qualify for health insurance benefits under the Affordable Care Act as outlined in your appointment/offer letter. Please refer to your appointment/offer letter or contact the Human Resources Department for more information about the Affordable Care Act. You are still eligible to contribute to Linfield's 403(b) Retirement Plan as an employee. 

In order to be eligible for most benefits, a regular status benefit-eligible employee must be designated at 0.50 FTE or above. Linfield's contribution toward health insurance premiums are prorated based on the FTE. Benefit-eligible employees can make their benefits elections through the Benefits portal. Detailed plan documents and contact information for each insurance carrier can be found on the portal.
