Voluntary benefits are optional programs and services designed to help you save time and money. Protect yourself and your loved ones with discounted and group rates on many programs.

These services are offered at a special rate to Stanford employees. Enrollment is optional. Learn more about these exclusive savings below and how to enroll in each service.

Voluntary Benefits FAQ

Identity theft is free to employees. All other voluntary benefit programs are paid for by employees at discounted rates. Employees will enroll directly with the carrier who will then bill the employee.

Employees may enroll in voluntary benefits anytime throughout the year.

Since voluntary benefits are not paid with pre-tax deductions, payment cannot be made through payroll deductions. 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.
