Full-time faculty and staff at Colorado Christian University have a wide variety of employee benefits to assist them and their families during their employment. Some of these benefits include medical, vision, dental and life insurance; a retirement savings plan; and a tuition waiver program.
Full-time employees are those who are regularly assigned to work 32 hours or more per week. Employees are eligible for coverage on their date of hire. Temporary employees who are regularly assigned to work 30 hours or more per week are eligible for medical coverage effective on their date of hire.
During the first week of employment, new hires meet with a Human Resources representative for a benefits orientation. The following list highlights CCU's current benefit offerings.
Colorado Christian University is pleased to offer comprehensive medical options for its employees. The plans offered include national providers within a traditional Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) as well as a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) offering. CCU believes employees appreciate options when choosing medical plans for their families that fit their individual utilization needs. All plans operate with the same network of providers and facilities, covering the same services and includes preventive care at 100%.
Health Savings Account (HSA) and FlexSystem offers employees the opportunity to pay for certain qualified benefits (medical, dependent care, and transportation expenses) on a pre-tax basis. Paying for certain benefits with pre-tax dollars reduces the amount paid in taxes and increases take-home pay. Every dollar paid on a pre-tax basis results in savings to the employee.
CCU offers dental coverage to employees and encourages preventive dental care. The coverage offered includes in-network and out-of-network coverage. Employees will generally have more cost savings by utilizing a provider in the national network offered.
CCU offers one of the nation's largest providers of eye care coverage, offering employees access to quality vision care. CCU employees benefit from annual exams and discounted corrective eyewear with low monthly premiums.
All full-time staff and faculty are offered life insurance as well as accidental death and dismemberment coverage at no cost to the employee.
Colorado Christian University encourages employees to participate in the 403b program administered by TIAA, a national financial services organization and the leading provider of retirement services in the academic field. A retirement plan is an important financial asset, and TIAA partners with CCU and our employees in planning for their retirement. Contributions of up to five percent are matched by CCU for this retirement 403b Plan.
