New Hours and Client-Focused Service Model for Benefits Office

In an effort to improve the delivery of benefits service, we are pleased to announce our new office hours and client-focused service model, which became effective Monday, July 9th.

The Benefits Office, located at 155 Whitney Avenue, Room 130, will now be open for business Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

In order to respond more effectively to individual customer needs, we have adopted a client-focused model that organizes the Benefits Office into two (2) benefits service teams: Health & Welfare and Retirement. A description of the services and programs under each team follows below. A Health & Welfare counselor and a Retirement counselor have been assigned to each department within Yale.

To identify the Health & Welfare and Retirement counselors for your department, please access the HR client assignment listing through the HR online directory at

Individual appointments may be made Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. via phone or email.
