The Wayne State University (WSU) benefit programs you receive while you are a member of our staff are administered by the Total Rewards department. We urge you to bookmark this web page and refer to it when you have questions about your benefits.


In general, you are eligible for medical, dental, vision and other benefits if you are in a benefits-eligible E-class and your appointment is 50% or greater. Employees represented by the Building Trades, temporary employees and students are not benefit-eligible. Part-time faculty have some benefit options available to them. Click here to learn about PTF benefits.
