New Hire - Enrolling in Benefits

The University of Alberta provides eligible employees with a comprehensive benefits package. This page contains the links to your benefit enrollment information. We strongly recommend that you refer to the Employee Self Service Online Tutorial or the Benefits Enrollment Training Guide to guide you through the Hire event.

Once you have submitted your hire event, the Sun Life system will be updated with your information by Wednesday of the week following submission. At that time you will be required to phone Sun Life at 1-800-361-6212 to register online at www.mysunlife.ca and to print your pay direct drug card etc.

Please visit the appropriate page, based upon your type of appointment, to continue with the benefit enrollment process.
