Employee Benefits

The university offers a comprehensive benefits package that represents a significant component of George Fox employees' total compensation. Most benefits are available to all regular employees, half time and above; however, benefits are prorated for employees who work less than full time.

Benefits at a Glance



1095-C for Employees

As part of the new Health Care Reform and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements, GFU will report to the IRS on the health insurance, if any, offered to employees. The Form 2015 1095-C will be delivered to campus boxes on 3/31/2016. This tax form includes information about the health insurance coverage offered to you and, if you were enrolled in the Pioneer Regence Medical Plan in 2015, your family. You may receive multiple Form 1095-Cs if you worked for multiple employers in the previous calendar year. In most cases, you do not need to wait for the Form 1095-C in order to file your 2015 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (IRS Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ). If you would like to request that the form to be mailed to you, please email your request to Darby Thiessen at dthiessen@georgefox.edu.

George Fox University’s eligibility for medical coverage is expanded to include employees and some students (non-work study) who worked an average of 30 hours per week in 2015.

Employees currently with eligibility for medical coverage and work-study students are not affected by this change.

Here are some of the eligibility details:

  • Must work longer than 6 months,
  • Must work an average of 30 hour per week from 1/1/2015-12/31/2015,
  • Must still be employed as of 3/1/2016, and
