Enrolment & enrolment changes

UBC offers an extensive benefits program for our employees and their eligible dependents.

As a new member of UBC’s faculty and staff, you need to enrol in the benefits program for your specific employee group. This will give you access to a range of benefits and programs to support your health and wellbeing.

Once you have enrolled in your benefits package and set up your payroll, you will want to:

  • Confirm your benefits enrolment on the UBC Faculty and Staff Self-Service Portal, where you can also view your personal and payroll information in a secure online environment.
  • Set up your access to the Sun Life Member Website, mysunlife.ca. Sun Life administers your Extended Health and Dental plans, and by setting up access to your account you can sign up for direct deposit, submit many claims and view details about your benefits.

We’re here to help!

If you have questions related to the status or processing of your benefits enrolment forms, please contact Payroll.
