Freed-Hardeman University offers a very competitive benefits package. Please see the detailed sections below for more information.
Effective March 1, 2008 a change has been made to our benefits program. When a new full time employee is hired, their benefits will be effective on their date of hire. When an employee terminates, their last day of active employment is the last day of their coverage. As an example, when a person begins working on March 8 their benefits will become effective March 8. An employee whose last day of work is May 20 will have coverage until midnight of that night.
