Benefits for International Employees-HR @ Carnegie Mellon University - Carnegie Mellon University

Benefits for International Employees

Carnegie Mellon provides benefits for its employees serving in assignments outside the United States. These benefits cover five core categories:

  • health (medical, prescription drug, dental, vision and employee assistance plan),
  • retirement/end-of-service,
  • tuition,
  • life insurance, and
  • disability benefits.

The benefits available to international faculty and staff are comparable to the benefits for our domestic faculty and staff, but are not identical. Some benefits may involve Pittsburgh facilities or vendors not available to those outside the United States. Some benefits are governed by U.S. and/or host nation laws, and may not be available to all faculty and staff.

The following documents provide overviews of international benefits available for expatriate and local employees:
