It is very difficult to provide a general overview of benefits for employees or prospective employees of the State University of New York College at Brockport. Each individual has a unique menu of options to chose from based upon a number of variables which include date of appointment, or in some cases, date of first State service; title of position, which determines negotiating unit; type of service (classified or unclassified); full-time or part-time status; and age, for examples. Recognizing the variations in the individual benefit packages available, this page will attempt to present an overview to help current employees understand their benefits as well as to provide potential employees with comparison data. As information is added for a particular subject, you will be able to click on the subject in the following index to access that information.
