Benefits Administration


Benefits are an integral part of an employee’s compensation package and Human Resources is eager to assist our employees with understanding their benefits.

As part of their total compensation, NOVA offers a variety of benefits to eligible faculty and staff, their dependents, and retirees. From a comprehensive health and dental insurance program, generous paid annual, sick and personal leave policies, deferred compensation plans, flexible spending accounts, family medical leave, paid parental leave, state employee discounts and paid short and long-term disability income protection to a solid and secure retirement system, NOVA’s competitive employee benefits package promotes wellness, peace of mind and financial security.

The Benefits Team strives to ensure employees are increasingly aware and kept up to date regarding their benefits options through a variety of communication outlets to include NOVA’s Daily Flyer and the monthly HR Newsletter.
