Welcome to the Shark Family!

Congratulations! You made the cut, and you are now ready to learn about NSU's FINstastic Benefits package. There are a few key points we would like to share with you so that we can guarantee a seamless experience:

  • You have 30 days from your date of hire to enroll in benefits through your ICUBA Enrollment portal
  • Once you are officially enrolled, your coverage and premium collection start on your very first day of employment (date of hire) 
  • Please keep in mind that a premium payment may be missed when enrollment occurs later in the enrollment period. Should this happen, the missed premium will be collected retroactively to your hire date.

If you are a new employee and eligible for benefits at NSU, you have 30 days from your date of hire to make elections. If you choose not to make benefit elections during your first 30 days, your next opportunity to enroll will be during NSU's Annual Open Enrollment period, or if you experience a qualified Life Event. 

Who is a benefit-eligible employee?

  • Employees working at least 19.2 (but less than 28) hours per week can elect all benefits except medical
  • Employees working at least 28 hours per week can elect all benefits including medical

If you are new to NSU or have recently become eligible for benefits as an NSU employee, there are a few things to keep in mind regarding your eligibility. Some benefits are effective immediately (on your date of hire), while others are effective after you meet certain employment milestones. 

  • Medical, Dental, Vision, and Flexible Spending eligibility begin on your date of hire
  • Life insurance is effective after successfully completing 90 days of employment
  • Disability benefits are effective after successfully completing 90 days of employment
  • 401(k) non-matched contributions can begin on the 1st of the month following your date of hire
  • 401(k) matched contributions can begin on the 1st of the month following your one-year anniversary

The premium for medical, dental, vision and flex spending is collected retroactively to your date of hire. Keep the following in mind after making your benefit elections:

  • Coverage and premium are effective the date you begin working
  • If you begin working the 1st through the 15th of the month, the premium collection begins immediately
  • If you begin working the 16th through the end of the month, the premium collection begins the following month
  • NSU does not pre-collect premium and premium is collected for the actual month coverage occurs. The first two pay dates each month pay for that month’s premium

Retroactive premium collection may be required depending on your hire date and how long you wait to make your elections.
