Benefits, Perks & Pay

The George Washington University is committed to offering you a comprehensive benefits package at a competitive cost.  As with any important purchase or decision, choice and cost are crucial. Your benefit plan selection is no different.

We believe that one size may not fit all, so as an employee of GW, you have the opportunity to choose from a variety of programs that allow you, and your family to determine the "best fit."

Enrollment Deadline: Unless otherwise noted, you have 30 calendar days from your Date of Hire to enroll online for your health and welfare benefits. If you do not enroll at that time, you will need to wait until Annual Open Enrollment (generally held in October, changes made during Open Enrollment are effective January 1 of the following year) to do so.
