Your Benefits on Leave
If you are on a paid leave of absence, all of your health and life insurance benefits will continue except your dependent care FSA.
When you move from a paid leave to an unpaid leave we allow you to drop your benefits within 31 days of going on unpaid status. If you keep your benefits while on unpaid leave, you will be billed directly by Billing Services for your premiums.
See the chart below for detailed information about your benefits on leave.

If you extend your leave to a personal leave of absence, you may keep your benefits, but will no longer receive a university contribution toward them.
