Voluntary Benefits

The University of Idaho offers a number of voluntary benefits to employees through Corestream. You can receive a discounted rate on common purchases, supplemental insurance, financial management resources and more. Some voluntary benefits can be added when you begin employment or during annual enrollment each October. Others can be added at any time.

Voluntary benefits have an additional cost, which you will be charged via payroll deduction. All payments are after-tax. Note that if you purchase more than one Corestream benefit, they will be combined into a single line on your payroll deduction. For an itemized statement, please contact Corestream. Human Resources does not receive this information about your Corestream purchases.

To learn more and enroll, visit the Corestream voluntary benefits website by logging in to VandalWeb and selecting Employees > myBenefits > My Voluntary Benefits.

Please contact Corestream customer service at 855-952-1600 or with questions.
