Employee Benefits

Widener values our employees by offering a comprehensive benefit program which includes:

Health Plans

Dental Plan

  • We offer two dental plans to cover periodic exams, cleanings, x-rays, and other major services.

Life and Disability Coverage

  • Widener is committed to ensuring our employees and their families are financially protected by offering life and disability insurance products at no cost to employees.

Defined Contribution Retirement Plan

  • To help employees plan for retirement, the university will match an eligible employee's election to withhold up to 5% of base salary, and will contribute an additional 5% of salary to our 403(b) plan once age and service requirements are met. Employees have the opportunity to direct these contributions within our investment lineup.

Tuition and Scholarship Programs

  • Widener offers employees and their dependents tuition benefits for themselves, their spouses/domestic partners, and their dependent children.
  • Widener also participates in a tuition scholarship program through which dependent children of eligible employees may be awarded scholarships at other participating higher education institutions.
