Who/What is a Benefit Eligible New Hire?
A new hire is an employee hired by the University for the first time and who has never held an appointment at UT Dallas. The required information regarding the employee's job appointment, employment status, salary, personal data, and tax status is obtained from the forms that the Administrative Unit and employee complete.
An employee is benefit eligible if they are appointed 50% or more and the appointment is for 4 1/2 months or longer. Percentage and length of appointment must meet the minimum criteria; if both criteria are not met, the employee is non-benefit eligible.
A rehire is a past employee we are hiring again e.g. someone who has separated and is returning to UTD employment. The Administrative Unit completes the required forms.
Important: The IRS requires that an employee's name on Form W-2 match the name printed on the employee's Social Security card. Mismatches may result in a financial penalty to the University. To ensure correct IRS reporting, a copy of the employee's SS card must be attached to the Appointment paperwork.
