Contact Information for Benefits

The Office of Human Resources serves as the liaison between the employee and the state agencies which manage our fringe benefits. We are ready to assist you in finding the information you need regarding your benefits. However, all employees are expected to assume responsibility for contacting the various agencies with specific questions, when you need to change an address, or when you have other concerns which need immediate attention from the retirement, insurance, or cafeteria plan providers.

If you have a question about your employment type, please refer to the Employee Handbook, found on the policies page of the Nunez Community College HR website.
