Complete descriptions are not possible in the handbook; employees should contact Human Resources for specific plan details.

A will is an important legal document that helps protect your family's future. The College's current provider, The Hartford, provides a service called EstateGuidance that creates a simple legal will quickly and conveniently online, with the support of licensed attorneys, if needed. Should you be interested in this benefit, please contact the Office of Human Resources for access information. This service is free of charge to you as long as you begin and end the process within 30 days.
