Conducted by University Benefits
This session is designed to help guide new employees through the benefits enrollment process. Employees must sign up for benefits during their first 60 calendar days of employment. Coverage does not begin automatically. Coverage effective dates for most plans generally begin the first of the month following enrollment, but for various voluntary plans will vary based on the payroll cycle. An early effective date may be requested for health coverage, however the date your coverage begins is determined based on your eligibility for certain health plans and the date you complete your enrollment.
Before attending the Benefits Enrollment session, employees are expected to:
- Review the Benefits section of the Human Resources website. The university’s benefits program includes state and university-sponsored plans, and
- Complete the two-part Online New Employee Orientation which features the “New Employee Challenge” including videos and institutional highlights to provide a great introduction to UF and UF employment.
In order to enroll, please bring the following to the Benefits Enrollment session:

If you have not already received your People First User ID by mail, you may obtain it by calling 1-866-663-4735. You may also find your People First User ID by logging into the myUFL system at my.ufl.edu > Main Menu > My Self Service > Benefits > PFID & Beneficiary Info.
