Compensation Calculator

The Total Compensation Calculator provides a comprehensive view of everything included in your compensation – salary, benefits and retirement contributions, qualified tuition reduction and other employment-related programs. The University also offers many employee-paid voluntary benefits, such as vision insurance, supplemental life insurance, short term disability and supplemental retirement plans.

In addition, UA Life & Work Connections (LWC) designs and delivers value-added 'whole person health' services: fitness, nutrition, mental and emotional health, dependent care services, educational seminars and comprehensive web-based resources. By promoting healthy lifestyles and work/life balance, employees are able to achieve their maximum potential at work and be fully engaged in their personal lives. To learn more, click here.
