    Basic medical benefits are controlled by the state Government Insurance Commission (GIC). There are a decent number of choices if you live in Mass, check carefully if you do not.

    The university has a good mix of benefits offered for 401k, vacation, and educational benefits for many state school offerings.

    The benefits overall at UMass Boston are very good, especially in comparison to what most workers get. We have our union representatives to thank for that. Benefits vary somewhat by bargaining unit, but all include family sick time, decent vacation time, health insurance, retirement contributions, dental/optical, tuition waiver, and paid holidays. Of course, we have to keep fighting to defend our contract from cutbacks, but the benefits and protections in our contracts sort of make up for what may be lacking, salary-wise. It would be good to have a better transportation benefit; we only have a pre-tax FSA to use for T passes.

    If you are a part-time worker at less than 50% you get zero benefits.
