Health Benefits


The San José State University Research Foundation provides a competitive health benefits package for its eligible benefited employees that includes medical, dental, vision coverages for employees and their eligible dependents, along with Life, ADD, and LTD insurance for the employee. 

Eligible benefited employees are those employees whose appointments are at least 50% time and are expected to exceed six months’ duration.

Dual Benefit Coverage

Employees holding a concurrent appointment with the Research Foundation and San Jose State University who are eligible for benefits from both institutions may only receive benefits from one source.

An employee or eligible dependent (s) cannot have dual coverage through CalPERS.
