5. When will my insurance coverage begin?
Your UAlbany health insurance coverage will begin on the 43rd day after your appointment at UAlbany, so you will need to extend your current coverage from your old employer or from your alma mater, or get a short term "gap" policy from a private insurer.
Human Resources Management will provide all necessary information about the variety of health insurance options available to you. As a member of United University Professions (UUP), you are automatically entitled to a large number of very useful benefits.
