New Employee Benefits
Welcome to West Virginia University!
WVU Benefits Strategy has put together an overview of employee benefit options for benefits-eligible employees. New employees will be able to enroll for required and optional benefits during their new hire onboarding processing. Benefits-eligible employees have the month of hire (month they become benefits-eligible) plus the two (2) following months to enroll. Coverage is effective the first of the following month after enrollment. Dependent documentation may be required upon enrollment in some benefit options (e.g. birth certificates, marriage certificates, etc.)
All new benefit-eligible employees may contact WVU Shared Services, Workforce Administration, by emailing SharedServices@mail.wvu.edu or by calling 304-293-6006 if you have questions about enrolling in or processing for your benefits.
