Regular Adjunct Faculty Benefits

The Benefits Department offers voluntary retirement contributions, health insurance, and a selection of voluntary benefits to our regular adjunct faculty members.

Voluntary Retirement Contributions
Adjunct faculty may elect to make voluntary 403(b) contributions on a pre-tax or Roth 403(b) after tax basis. Contributions may be invested at any of the funds offered by either TIAA-CREF or Fidelity Investments. Adjuncts may enroll effective the first of any month and contributions will be deducted from regular pay. For questions, email us at retirement@temple.edu.

Health Insurance
There are two levels of health care subsidy by the University: 50% or 25% of single coverage depending on the number of semesters/courses with 2 or more credits taught by a regular adjunct in an academic year. Any regular adjunct can elect family coverage, provided the adjunct pays 100% of the additional charge for such coverage.

The following adjunct faculty will be eligible for a subsidy equal to the cost of 50% of the premium for single coverage.

-
Faculty having primary responsibility for 2 courses in the current semester each bearing 2 credits or more and having had primary responsibility for 2 courses each bearing 2 credits or more in at least 1 of the 3 immediately preceding Fall or Spring semesters.
-
Clinical or research faculty working twenty (20) hours or more per week in the current semester and having worked twenty hours or more per week in at least 1 of the 3 immediately preceding Fall or Spring semesters.

The following adjunct faculty will be eligible for a subsidy equal to the cost of 25% of the premium for single coverage:

-
Faculty having primary responsibility for 1 course in the current semester bearing 2 credits or more and having had primary responsibility for at least 1 course bearing 2 credits or more in at least 1 of the 3 immediately preceding Fall or Spring semesters.
-
Clinical or research faculty working ten (10) hours or more per week in the current semester and having worked ten (10) hours or more per week in at least 1 of the 3 immediately preceding Fall or Spring semesters. 

Eligible regular adjunct faculty may enroll in the medical plan within 31 days of their appointment date. Coverage will be effective the first of the month following enrollment and will cease at the end of the appointment. For questions, email us at benefits@temple.edu.
