Postdoc Benefit Plans

Postdoctoral Benefit Plans

Open Enrollment for postdoctoral trainees has ended.  If you missed the enrollment window please contact Gallagher Benefit Services at 844-315-4550 or for information on how to enroll for plan year 2021.

Northwestern has implemented a new benefit package for postdocs across the University.  This new benefits package will create parity between all postdocs regardless of funding.  The benefits offered in this new package align with benefits offered to faculty and staff, and in many cases will have lower premiums.  This new benefit package will be administered by Gallagher Benefit Services.
