The university pays a portion of the insurance premiums for benefits eligible employees as part of their total compensation package. These contributions are called "Sooner Credits" and are listed on the left side of your paycheck earnings statement. Sooner Credits are used for the core insurance programs: medical, dental, life insurance, and accidental death & dismemberment.
Full and part-time employees classified to work between 20 and 40 hours per week are eligible for benefits. The Sooner Credit amount contributed for each employee is prorated based on their full-time equivalency
(FTE) as shown below.
