Unit 3 Benefits
Unit 3 is comprised of Postdoctoral Fellows employed at McMaster.
Unit 3 members have access to a variety of benefits including the Dental Plan, Postdoctoral Fellow Support Fund, and in some cases the benefits plan provided through Sun Life (see below for details). Unit 3 members can also apply to the Hardship Fund for emergency or unanticipated one-time expenses not covered elsewhere.
Appointments 1 year or longer:
Unit 3 members with appointments of 1 year or longer are eligible for Extended Health Care through the University’s plan with Sun Life.
Please note, if you had an appointment of less than one year, and you were granted an extension of your contract making the total length longer than 1 year, you will become eligible for the Sun Life plan as of the date of your extension.
