Carleton College offers a comprehensive program of benefits designed to provide a variety of protections for you and your family. The College contributes significantly to the cost of most of these benefits, and you may be required to contribute a portion of your pay to some. Benefits mandated by law, Social Security and Medicare, require significant contributions by both you and the College.

If you have questions about benefits after reviewing this information, see our Frequently Asked Questions section, or contact us for assistance.
