SSA - Work & Life Events

Columbia University offers a wide variety of resources to help balance work responsibilities and everyday life. As a member of the University’s Support Staff Association, you may update or change your benefits during the year when you experience a qualified life status change or during the annual Benefits Open Enrollment period. This area of the site provides information on the steps you may need to take should you experience changes in your life or on the job—such as a change in marital status, birth or adoption of a child, joining the University and gaining/losing employment or retiring.

IMPORTANT: Beginning, April 1, 2017, Cigna will be the new carrier for the University’s life insurance and disability benefits.
