New Hires

You have access to a robust benefits program enabling you to take charge of your physical, emotional and financial well-being. Our goal is to ensure that our benefits remain affordable to all employees.

Please note that if you are beginning employment after October 12th and prior to December 1st you will need to enroll in both New Hire benefits for the remainder of 2022 as well as Open Enrollment benefits for your elections for the 2023 plan year. Note: these are two separate enrollments in SmartSource and both need to be completed if you would like benefits for the remainder of 2022 and for 2023 plan year (effective January 1, 2023).

Plan Rates

Most of the cost of your medical and dental coverages, and all the cost of your short-term disability and basic life insurance are employer-paid.

Your rates are based on your employment status and salary tier as of January 1. See 2022 Rates for more details and Open Enrollment information here for information on what’s changing for the 2023 plan year.
