Employees may use after-tax payroll deductions to pay the premiums for Pre-Paid Legal Services. For all other plans, employees enroll at any time, directly with the carrier, who will then bill the employee. You will have payment options with each service provider such as direct billing, electronic funds transfer (EFT) or recurring credit card debits.

To receive discounts on voluntary benefits, you must be employed with Stanford. These discounts will end at policy renewal once you are no longer employed by the university. Any additional discounts you may receive, such as good driver, would continue as they are not based upon being a Stanford employee.

Part-time, benefits-eligible employees are eligible to receive voluntary benefits discounts available to Stanford.

Please contact service providers directly with any questions regarding available insurance policies, coverages and discounts. Mention you are a benefits-eligible employee at Stanford University to receive the discount on their policy.
