Default University endowed benefits health insurance "rates"

Hello again,

I am trying to work out how much we will be contributing to health insurance - I will be on Cornell University endowed benefits which has a load of choices of "rates" with the note:

"Rates shown are based on 26 pay periods for nonexempt staff and 24 pay periods for exempt staff and faculty."

This maybe be a really silly question but...I know I get paid twice a month so does this mean a rate of $100, means I have $100 every month or twice a month??

Yes - a rate of $100 would mean that it is $100 per pay period which, in your case, is twice a month.
