6. Am I eligible for any benefits as part of my Graduate Assistantship?

Most graduate assistants are eligible for a variety of benefits, including health insurance, employees’ retirement system benefits, flex spending accounts, and tax-deferred savings plans. Human Resources Management has all the necessary information about the variety of options available to you.

The Graduate Student Employees Union is the bargaining unit for state-funded graduate student employees at UAlbany. Dues are automatically deducted from your paycheck; to become eligible for the privileges of membership, however, you will need to complete a membership application.
