Benefit Summaries

Who is eligible for benefits?

Your eligibility for benefits is based on your appointment status, your position, the percent of time you work, and the duration of your appointment. Most employees who work at least half time in a regular position are eligible. Refer to policy for more details. View other sites for benefits as a UAMS student or as a UAMS retiree.
