Support Services for Employees Impacted by Campus Flooding
The University is offering numerous support services for employees affected by the water-main break on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, including an emergency loan fund for those with damaged vehicles.
The following resources are available for eligible staff members impacted by the campus flooding:
The University has developed a loan-assistance program for UCLA employees and students whose vehicles were damaged in the flood. Those in need of an emergency loan need to complete the Emergency Relief Survey. Upon completion, a Payroll Coordinator will be in contact with the employee to help him/her through the loan process. For students who need an emergency loan, please visit: http://www.loans.ucla.edu/Short-Term-Loan.
In partnership with UCLA, University Credit Union has created a special program to assist members of the UCLA community affected by the recent flooding. The program also includes a donation drive benefitting the refurbishing of Pauley Pavilion and/or the Morgan Center.
Employees may tap into their 403(b) Plan to borrow up to 50 percent of the amount in their savings account. Please note: The interest rate for a 403(b) loan is Prime plus 1% as of the first day of the month in which the loan is initiated. However, the interest is applied directly to the employee’s account from which the loan proceeds were withdrawn. For questions, contact Fidelity at 1-866-682-7787.
Insurance and Risk Management is coordinating efforts for those affected by the flood. To assist the department, employees impacted by the disaster need to fill out an online insurance survey.
Employees who have a California Casualty policy and want to use it for flood damage, contact UCLA’s Account Manager, Nina Ericksen, at (805) 377- 6561 or at [email protected].
Parking structure and vehicle retrieval updates are provided on this site.
Assistance with transportation alternatives is available by contacting UCLA Transportation at 310-794-RIDE. Free public transit passes for Big Blue Bus, Culver CityBus, and Metro are available for staff, faculty, and students with a UCLA ID, and parking permit holders will be given a two week refund of parking fees.
This frequently updated site provides links to flood resources, including a helpful Insurance FAQ and messages from Chancellor Block.
The Center offers support to UCLA faculty and staff who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. All services are free, voluntary, and confidential.
