Radford University to host Annual Employee Benefits Fair

The annual Employee Benefits Fair will be held on Oct. 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Muse Hall Banquet Room. The fair is an opportunity for Radford employees to understand the variety of benefits their positions provide.

Insurance and investment vendors, healthcare providers and informational exhibits will all be on hand for employees to engage with. As a further benefit, flu shots will be provided. To receive a flu shot at no cost, employees must present their COVA health insurance card. In order to accommodate all employees, those not covered by a state health plan will be able to participate on a "self-pay" basis.

Insurance and investment vendors will include Aflac, AXA, Liberty Mutual, Ameriprise and the VRS Defined Contribution plan (457). There will be various institutions available including BB&T, Freedom First Credit Union, Member One Credit Union, SunTrust and Virginia Credit Union.

Health benefit information will be provided by Aetna, Anthem BC/BS, Delta Dental, ActiveHealth Management and CommonHealth. Retirement information will be provided by VRS. Health and wellness exhibits will be set up by The Hearing Clinic, VA Vein Institute, Weight Watchers, New River Valley Agency on Aging, New River Valley Wellness Center and many others.

Other vendors providing employee discounts on services/products will be in attendance, including AT&T, Myoptics Eyewear, Athletics Department and Sam's Club.

Employees who cannot attend the fair can find more information at the Human Resources website or contact JaRenae Whitehead, associate director of Human Resources, at jwhitehead2@radford.edu.
