Faculty Benefits

Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai offers a rich combination of benefits and quality of life resources to our faculty. Learn about health benefits, retirement plans, time off policies and more.

Icahn School of Medicine is committed to provide benefit plans that will protect faculty and their eligible family members in the event of illness, injury, or death and will help faculty to achieve financial security for their retirement. Details of these benefits plans are available from Human Resources. Please be advised that benefits vary depending upon faculty title and that benefit plans change from time to time. Provisions of the master policies govern the terms and conditions of these benefits.

Mount Sinai offers its benefits-eligible employees tax-deferred investment options to save for retirement. Mount Sinai will contribute to the plan on your behalf, and in order to initiate your own employee (individual) contribution, you will need to complete certain forms.
