We are in final preparations for Workday and the Integrated Service Centre going live on November 2.

Administrative executive: benefit eligibility, start date and cost

Administrative Executives hold senior administrative roles – such as vice president or associate vice president of non-academic units – at UBC.

The benefits you are eligible for as an Administrative Executive depend on:

  • your age at your date of hire, and
  • your salary, which determines whether you are eligible to enrol in the Staff Pension Plan or Faculty Pension Plan.

You are eligible for the first Administrative Executive benefits program if your annual salary for 2020 is less than $171,790.00.

You are eligible for the second Administrative Executive benefits program if your annual salary for 2020 is $171,790.00 or greater, which represents the maximum earnings for the Staff Pension Plan.

Before you enrol in your benefit package, please review the table below to familiarize yourself with:

  • the benefits you are eligible for,
  • whether these benefits are mandatory or optional,
  • the date that each benefit will become effective and
  • the monthly cost of each benefit.

Once you have decided which of the optional benefits you want to sign up for, please complete the UBC Benefits Sign-On Session to enrol for benefits and sign up for payroll. You will need the enrolment code listed below to complete this session. Your Benefits Enrolment Code is also included on your Letter of Offer.
