In May 2019, Berkeley's Benefits and Leaves team was re-aligned and now part of People & Culture (formerly Central Human Resources (CHR). They continue to provide support for all UC Berkeley employees and retirees*. You can still reach them by calling (510) 664-9000, option 3 and leave a message, or open an HR ServiceNow ticket and it will be routed appropriately.
The Benefits page of the Berkeley People & Culture website has the full suite of information about the array of high quality benefit plans the University of California offers.
