Benefits, Compensation, and Aid Funds

Unitarian Universalist organizations practice the values of our faith within their own walls by compensating their staff appropriately and providing access to high-quality benefits.  The UUA compensation program and benefit plans are administered by the Office of Church Staff Finances.

  • Team up to tune up! Our new Benefits Tune-up Workbook (PDF) (Word) walks you through the basics of administering UUA benefits. Gather a team, complete the workbook, and offer our plans with confidence.
  • Need help with benefits enrollment for new employees? Our Welcoming and Onboarding checklist (PDF) can help. And check out our Benefits Summary Chart (PDF) for an overview of eligibility, enrollment windows, and congregational requirements for all of our benefit plans.
  • Transitioning from one congregational employer to another? Ensure that your benefits transition with you smoothly by following the Action Steps on our Transitioning Benefits page.
