Life And Disability

Life Insurance
ULI provides employees with 100% company-paid Basic Life Insurance coverage equal to 2.5x your annual compensation up to $400K.

Supplemental Life Insurance
In addition to company-paid life insurance, employees have the option to purchase supplemental insurance for themselves, as well as coverage for their family.

Short Term Disability
ULI provides Short Term Disability (STD) coverage at no additional cost. If you become disabled as a result of illness, injury or pregnancy, the plan replaces 60% of your base pay (up to $1,000 per week) while you are on approved disability leave.

Long Term Disability
Long Term Disability (LTD) coverage is also provided at no additional cost. LTD benefits start when STD coverage ends and replaces 60% of your base pay (up to $8,000 per month) while you are on an approved disability leave.

Other Voluntary Pre-tax Benefits

Health Savings Account (HSA)
The Health Savings Account is available to employees who enroll in ULI’s high deductible health plan. ULI will fund a portion of the deductible  by making contributions directly into individual’s Health Savings Account (HSA). HSA accounts allow for pre-tax dollars to be set aside by employers or employees for qualified health care expenses. HSA accounts allow unused dollars to grow tax-free, carry over each year, and move with the employee from job to job.  Employees who wish to reduce their taxable income may contribute pre-tax dollars to their HSA up to the IRS maximum.

Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
ULI provides employees with the opportunity to reduce their taxes by participating in a Health Care and/or Dependent Care FSA.  Employees do not need to elect medical, dental or vision coverage in order to participate in the FSA.

Parking and Transportation Commuter Plan
Employees may set aside money on a pre-tax basis to pay for parking or public transportation expenses related to their commute to and from work.


403(b) Plan
ULI’s 403(b) plan provides employees with a variety of investment options from which to choose.  ULI will contribute 3% of the salary base contribution plus a dollar-for-dollar match up to 3%, then 50 cents on the next 2% of the employee’s contribution after one year of service. If the employee contributes 5%, ULI will match 4% of their contribution plus 3% of the base contribution, totaling a 7% contribution from ULI into the retirement plan. The maximum pre-tax contribution should not exceed the IRS limit for the current year.

Work Life

Paid Time Off & Personal Leave
Full-time employees are eligible for up to 15 days of paid time off per calendar year.  ULI employees also receive six sick days to use per year.  Once you have been with the company for five years, you will be eligible for 21 days of paid time off per calendar year. Employees are eligible for 27 days of paid time off after ten years of service.

Part-time regular employees who work at least 30 hours/week accrue and earn paid time off and sick time at half the rate of full time employees.

Regular full-time, active employees receive 10 paid holidays in which the office is closed.

Family Medical Leave
Once the eligibility requirements under the Family Medical Leave Act are met, you may be eligible for up to 16 weeks of leave within a 16 month period to use for illness, care of your newborn or newly adopted child, or to care for a family member who is seriously ill.

Other Leave
As a full-time or part-time (30 hours/week) employee you will also receive a paid time off benefit in the event of a death in your family, if you are called to jury duty, subpoenaed as a witness in a jury trial, if you are called to military duty, or parental leave.

Employee Assistance Plan (EAP)
You and your family have access to the EAP resource center and referral service at no cost to you. Through this program, you can receive confidential counseling, financial services, and legal assistance.
