UMS Employee Benefits Center

Welcome to your UMS Employee Benefits Center!

The UMS Employee Benefits Center (EBC) is a centralized, one-stop resource for benefits enrollment, information and assistance. We offer employee advocacy when dealing with insurance carriers and other benefit service providers. In addition to providing direct support to employees, the EBC is responsible for many of the employee benefits administrative functions. The Employee Benefits Center is available to assist employees by phone or email 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.

Employee benefits  are a significant part of the overall UMS total compensation package.  All full-time regular and part-time regular employees working at least half time are eligible for benefits. Employees pay different premium amounts based on the type of employee, collective bargaining agreement, and percent of time worked. Additional information about benefits, eligibility, costs and enrollment is available to employees on the MyUMS Portal.  More information regarding MaineStreet can be found here.
