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



Flu shots for GFU Employees and Family

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 and corrections in late July. 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.
