Hiring & Benefits
As Emory and the VA jointly hire new faculty and existing faculty transition between the organizations, there are often questions about which benefits are available and how they may change over time. Part time VA staff members that have joint appointments with Emory can choose benefit packages either with the VA or Emory. Some mix their benefits and might obtain, for example, health benefits from the VA and use the savings plan from Emory. The VAMC benefits office has a prorated table which specifies the cost for benefits by hours worked at the VA per week. Employees should meet with benefits representatives from both the Emory and the VA to compare and decide on benefits.
