Funding Benefits

Clinical Staff

If a member receives monthly income through the University payroll, deductions for statutory benefits, pension and life insurance plans will be automatically deducted from their pay. If a member does not receive income from the University in a given month, no pension contributions are payable and life insurance premiums will be invoiced to the member for payment. Clinical departments will be automatically charged for employer costs of statutory, pension and other benefits in the program on a monthly basis. Clinical department administrators can answer questions regarding the effect that a member’s benefits program participation has on the level of tithes and Points Based Remuneration that is payable from the department.
