2018 Benefits Handbook (Summary Plan Description)

The 2018 Benefits Handbook, also known as Summary Plan Description (SPD), is a summary of the Caltech benefit program that focuses on our health, welfare, and retirement benefits. This interactive benefits summary was created to help Faculty, Staff, and Postdoctoral Scholars understand the Caltech benefits program.

If you need more health & welfare information that is not included in the SPD, review the Evidence of Coverage (EOC)* below.
