Accident and Critical Illness Insurance
These voluntary benefits are administered by Symetra. Open enrollment for these three voluntary benefits is only at the time of hire and at special enrollment periods to be determined. During your benefits meeting, an HR representative will provide you with brochures, sample rates and briefly describe the three voluntary benefits. These voluntary benefits are employee paid via payroll deduction, there is no employer contribution toward the premium.
Augustana is not able to enroll you in these benefits; you must enroll through the BenefitFirst portal. An email with login instructions will be sent to all eligible new hires.
