Total Compensation Calculator
This calculator is a decision-making tool for prospective employees considering a career with the University of Missouri (UM) System. Compensation is bigger than just the salary you earn. It includes how much the university subsidizes your insurance, what kinds of retirement plans are available to you, the number of paid leave days you can earn, and more. Use this calculator to help compare your current compensation with what UM can offer.
Also, explore the Total Rewards website to learn more about the rewards package we offer to acknowledge our employees as the university's most important resource. All circumstances cannot be accounted for in this calculator (footnote 1). Individuals have unique considerations that may not be captured. And because faculty benefits can differ depending on the position, this calculator is primarily for individuals who are considering a staff position.
Please note: This calculator is not geared for existing UM employees; it does not populate with your existing compensation information. Existing employees seeking an estimate of their retirement earnings should go to the the webpage named "Estimate your retirement benefits."
