Faculty Rights tip of the week: Flex Cash

This is a new feature for the CFA Headlines. CFA will regularly run a brief “faculty rights tip” or short information piece about the faculty contract.


Through the FlexCash Plan (Article 32.13 in the Faculty Contract), faculty who waive CSU benefits because they have other non-CSU coverage can receive an additional $128 in compensation per month for waiving just medical benefits, $12 for waiving dental, and $140 for waiving both. 

In order to participate, each employee must request participation and certify that s/he has alternate non-CSU insurance for the CSU insurance being waived.
