All tickets purchased on game day/night will be full price. Saint Joseph’s University games played at local, off-campus sites (Palestra, Spectrum, etc.) are not necessarily included at discounted rates.

Premiums are payable through payroll deduction with no interest or carrying charges. Acceptance in these programs is made by the insurance company. Information on both programs is available in the Human Resources Office.
Saint Joseph's University provides the opportunity for credit union membership through the National Business Association. Members can save regularly through payroll direct deposit and also have the opportunity to borrow at moderate interest rates.

Employees who have need for child care may have access to The Children’s School at Saint John’s Church on a first-come, first-serve basis. This center is a mutual undertaking between Saint Joseph’s University and Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Bala Cynwyd.
Dependent Care Assistance Plan
The Dependent Care Assistance Plan is designed to allow the employee to pay for qualifying dependent care expenses on a before-tax basis. Employees pay for eligible expenses and submit claims to the University's third party administrator, Payflex. Reimbursement for eligible expenses is made by check or direct deposit. Information and forms for this benefit are available in the Office of Human Resources.
Fringe Benefit Plan
This plan is designed to provide tax savings to those employees who subscribe to the medical, dental and/or vision plans.
Contributions to the Federal Social Security Program are based on the amount of gross salary received by an employee. An employee who uses plan credits to buy insurance coverage will have his or her gross salary reduced by the value of those credits. As a result, for such an employee, contributions to the Federal Social Security Program will be reduced accordingly.
If an employee contribution is required for coverage, an employee's regular pay will be reduced on a before-tax basis to pay for that coverage unless an employee elects to pay with after-tax dollars. An employee may revise this election during the year only if a change in family status occurs and for no other reason.
The pay periods are on the 15th and the last day of the month. If that day falls on a holiday, Saturday or Sunday, pay will be available on the preceding work day. Salary payments are provided by direct deposit.
