Benefits Overview Guides

The University of Maine System is proud to offer a comprehensive and competitive benefits program. Benefits are an important part of your total rewards, so we continually strive to ensure that the benefits program is meaningful and continues to attract and retain the qualified faculty and staff needed to serve our students and our state.

We encourage you to review the programs outlined in this guide before making your final benefits choices. Share it with your spouse or partner who may be eligible for some of our plans. You may find additional information on our website and MyUMS employee portal, and ask questions of the Employee Benefits Center before you enroll. Once enrolled, stay engaged and informed by reviewing benefits information sent to your email account throughout the year.
