In addition to your compensation, GW offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes health care coverage, paid vacation and sick leave, a voluntary retirement program with a university-funded four percent core and up to six percent matching contribution (up to IRS limits), education benefits, life insurance, special discounts and various work-life benefits.

To help you understand the scope of your benefits and payroll procedures, we strongly encourage you to attend the Benefits and Payroll Webinar for New Employees. The 90-minute webinar provides a thorough overview of your benefits and pay, and offers an opportunity to ask questions to our GW Benefits team member.
