Full-time faculty and staff at Colorado Christian University have a wide variety of employee benefits to assist them and their families during their employment. Some of these benefits include medical, vision, dental and life insurance; a retirement savings plan; and a tuition waiver program.

Full-time employees are those who are regularly assigned to work 32 hours or more per week. Employees are eligible for coverage on their date of hire. During the first week of employment, new hires meet with a Human Resources representative for a benefits orientation. The following list highlights CCU's current benefit offerings.


Medical Insurance

In 2005, United Health Care acquired Midwest Security Administration and this acquisition gave United Health Care an opportunity to serve customers who are self-insured. They later became United Medical Resources (UMR) and continued to operate as a third party administrator. UMR offers a flexible, high-touch alternative to assist employees and organizations with their self-insurance needs. They offer a national scope, yet a regional attention to clients. UMR is the third party administrator CCU is currently using to assist employees with their health care plan options. You can learn more about UMR by visiting their website at


Dental Insurance

Delta Dental, America’s largest dental benefits carrier, has been providing high quality, comprehensive dental benefits in the state of Colorado and nationwide since 1958. CCU is pleased to offer the Delta Dental PPO plan to our employees.

Vision Insurance

VSP Vision Care, the nation's largest provider of eyecare coverage, has been providing comprehensive, cost-effective eyecare benefits for more than fifty years. VSP network doctors offer several convenient locations near business, residential areas, and shopping centers.

Retirement Benefit

403b Retirement Program

Colorado Christian University encourages employees to participate in the 403b program administered by TIAA-CREF, a national financial services organization and the leading provider of retirement services in the academic field.
