SMU offers a comprehensive, cost-effective and competitive benefits package to help protect you and your family. But it works only if you take control and make thoughtful decisions about your benefits. You need to take an active role in understanding and choosing your benefits. This way, you can be sure your benefits support your needs and goals.
To help you make informed benefits choices, SMU gives you several tools, including this webpage and the Benefits Guide. Use the links on the right to access additional information. Get details on staff/faculty, dependent, and domestic partner eligibility to determine if you or someone else in your family qualifies to participate in our benefits plans. Once you understand who is eligible for benefits, visit the qualified life events section to learn how specific life events such as a birth, adoption, legal guardianship, change in marital status, or the death of a spouse or enrolled dependent may also affect eligibility and your choices.
