Total Compensation Statement
The Total Compensation Statement is a comprehensive overview of your earnings and benefits. This information is provided to show you the value of your benefits provided by the University of Nebraska.
As the pie chart shows, your total compensation includes much more than your annual earnings. Your total compensation also includes valuable incentives such as health, retirement, leave, and other benefits.
Your benefit package is paid with money that the University and enrolled employees contribute. We are able to keep your benefits package competitive through the vigilant efforts of our employees maintaining healthy behaviors and spending our plans funds wisely. We commend you for your efforts and thank you for all that you do for the University of Nebraska.
**Except for long term care, voluntary life insurance, Roth 403(b), and dependent life insurance, your contributions to the University benefits are a taxable gross salary reduction. This means you will not pay federal income, state income, or social security tax on the cost of these benefits. Because your premiums for these benefits are paid for with pre-tax dollars, you save on taxes, which increases your amount of take home pay.
***The value of leave benefits is already accounted for in annual earnings and is not included as an itemized dollar entry.
Additional indirect benefits include the value of workers compensation insurance, unemployment insurance, travel accident insurance, travel discounts, discounted and free admission to University activities, campus employee discount programs, employee assistance program, family resource center, training programs, professional certifications, credit union membership, computer lab access, and library access.
