We offer medical, eye and dental plans, life insurance, flexible spending accounts, retirement plans and other benefits for you to design your ideal package.
Benefit tips to consider
- Domestic Partners may be added to your medical and/or dental insurance plans as long as you meet specific requirements (such as residing together for at least six months) and complete a Domestic Partner affidavit in HR. Please know that by adding a domestic partner to your plan(s), you will be charged the associated premium and will also be taxed on that benefit.
- Please contact Human Resources within 30 days of any domestic partner status change. This includes becoming a newly qualified domestic partner, the end of domestic partner relationship, or becoming legally married. Contact the Benefits & Disability Specialist with any questions regarding domestic partner coverage.
- Eligible dependents may be covered on your medical and/or dental insurance plans up to age 26. Coverage will end on the last day of the month during which they turn 26. If your dependent is turning 26 please contact HR to complete a Benefit Election Form to remove them from your plan(s) and reduce your monthly premium(s) as appropriate.
