Good Fit Benefit Plan

PLU is proud to provide a comprehensive benefits program which offers a variety of benefit options to meet the diverse needs of our employees.  From medical care to retirement - with wellness ideas, time off benefits and continuing education opportunities in between - Good Fit was created because we understand that one size doesn't fit all.


Every month, our TIAA-Cref representative is available on campus to answer employee questions about retirement.
