Benefits Administration

Your benefits are an important part of your overall compensation package, and The Claremont Colleges are pleased to offer benefits-eligible employees a comprehensive array of benefits. These benefits are designed to help protect and enhance the overall well-being and way of life for you and all eligible family members. Your robust benefits package includes medical, dental and vision insurance, retirement accounts, life insurance, long term disability insurance, wellness programs, and mental health support, among others. Some benefits are provided automatically and at no cost to you, while others will require your enrollment. Take time to familiarize yourself with what’s available and the coverage options. When it comes to your health and wellbeing, we understand “one size” does not fit all. That’s why The Claremont Colleges offer a variety of coverage levels and rates, providing employees the flexibility to choose the plan(s) that are best suited for their needs and the needs of their eligible family members. Questions? Contact Benefits Administration using the information outlined above, or review our annual Benefits Guide.
