Faculty Benefits

Fort Lewis College is a member of the Colorado Higher Education Insurance Benefits Alliance (CHEIBA). CHEIBA membership includes a total of 8 colleges across the state. Some benefits of membership with CHEIBA are that we can pool our resources, have premium plan packages and share the experience ratings across a larger population. OPEN ENROLLMENT is every November with changes taking effect January 1st.

Employees are required to enroll in health, dental, group term life insurance and long term disability benefits. (The only exception is if the employee is covered under a spouse’s group health insurance or military plan.) Automatic enrollment has proven to keep our costs lower for the entire group and continues to be a successful strategy in the overall CHEIBA strategic business plan.

If you have questions about any employee benefits at Fort Lewis College, please contact the Office of Human Resources.

Retirement Options

Voluntary Supplemental Retirement Options

Family Medical Leave

Before you can use Colorado Paid Family Leave it must be certified by Human Resources.

Colorado voters approved Proposition 118 in November of 2020, paving the way for a state-run Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance (FAMLI) program. The FAMLI program will ensure all Colorado workers have access to paid leave in order to take care of themselves or their family during life circumstances that pull them away from their jobs — like growing their family or taking care of a loved one with a serious health condition.
