Benefit information sessions

Please note that currently these benefit information sessions are suspended until further notice, as a result of the COVID-19 virus

Benefit information sessions for new staff are generally held twice a month in the Human Resources Department, usually on the first and second Tuesday of each month.

These sessions cover the following topics which are of interest to new staff:

  • Employee Assistance Programme (ICAS)
  • Retirement benefits
  • Healthcare benefits and options

New staff are encouraged to attend a session prior to or as near as possible after their start date at UCT so that they can make informed decisions with regard to the benefits listed above.

The information sessions are held in the Bremner Building from 10h00 to 12h30. Please inform the Appointments Office of which day you are able to attend. The dates of the sessions are as follows:

3rd or 10th March
7th or 14th April
5th or 12th May
2nd or 9th June
7th or 14th July
4th or 11th August
1st or 8th September
6th or 13th October
3rd or 10th November
1st or 8th of December

If you are unable to attend either of the sessions in the month you take up the appointment, please liaise with the Appointments Office about setting up one-on-one sessions with our Benefit Specialists. It would be appreciated, however, if every effort could be made to attend one of the general sessions.
