Human Resources



The UMKC benefits team is responsible for administering University benefit programs for all eligible employees on the UMKC campuses. We can help you with insurance benefits, including health, dental, vision, life and disability; retirement benefits; and other fringe benefits, such as tuition reduction waivers. We can also help you complete and update all of your benefit enrollment forms. Let us know what we can do to help. We look forward to serving you.

Have a question about your benefits or want additional information on the UM Benefits Programs?

Walk-ins are certainly welcome, however, to ensure someone is available and has the appropriate time and information to address your questions, we prefer employees schedule an appointment.
