As California once again faces a number of serious wildfires throughout the state, this year with the added challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's important that employees know about the numerous emergency resources available to them. Emergency resources from UC’s benefits plans on UCnet provides details about the support and accommodations, from emergency supplies of your essential prescriptions to loans from your voluntary retirement savings plan.
Emotional support resources are available regardless of whether employees are enrolled in UC benefits, including support through your Faculty and Staff Assistance Program.
There is also helpful information about dealing with wildfire smoke from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
If employees need extra assistance with their health benefits, please contact the plan directly. Customer service representatives will do their best to offer the help employees need as quickly as possible.
