McGill's employee benefits program includes Supplemental Health, Dental, Short and Long Term Disability, Basic and Optional Life Insurance, Accidental Insurance, and an Employee and Family Assistance Program. You can find more information about these benefits here.

New staff must enrol for benefits in Workday and choose which benefits they wish to receive. They have thirty days from the benefit event date to complete their enrolment and submit required supporting documentation.
