Temporary Jobs At The University Of Michigan

Question: Am I eligible for benefits as a temporary employee?


Temporary employees are not eligible for benefits except for travel accident insurance.

Non-exempt (hourly) temporary employees may contribute to a 403(b) Supplemental Retirement Account (SRA) with TIAA-CREF or Fidelity at any time.  You contribute a fixed dollar amount with each paycheck; there is no university matching contribution.  Contributions and earnings are tax-deferred, meaning you do not pay state or federal taxes until you take a distribution from the account.
