Manchester Met Staff Benefits Website

Unfortunately, our staff benefits website is not working at the moment. The web team are aware of the issue and are working to try and sort this out. In the meantime, our national benefits website, https://www.mcrplus.co.uk/ is still up and running. You may need to re-register for this website if you have not used it for a while. The scheme code is 0164 and you may need to input your MMU ID and Surname to access the site.

A lot of people have asked for details of our childcare voucher scheme. The details as they appear on the benefits website are below.

 

Fideliti Childcare Voucher Scheme

Benefit from reduced childcare costs

Claim by contacting directly on 0800 288 8727

Manchester Metropolitan recognises the importance of achieving a work-life balance, particularly if you have childcare responsibilities. We also understand that there can be high costs associated with childcare. In conjunction with a company called Fideliti the University has in place a scheme to allow you to make significant savings to the costs of your childcare for children up to the age of 16.

Under the scheme part of an employee’s salary can be given up or ‘sacrificed’ in exchange for Childcare Vouchers.  Up to a certain amount, these vouchers are non-taxable and exempt from National Insurance Contributions and therefore represent a saving for Manchester Metropolitan staff who receive them as part of their employment package. The Childcare Vouchers received are then exchanged, in whole or part, for the childcare services staff use.

To join or for further information, please visit www.fideliti.co.uk or call them on 0800 288 8727 and quote our scheme reference number MMU7566 (please have a copy of your current payslip to hand for reference).
