Most companies offer a 401K or a 403b plan that allows you to save pre-tax (gross income) dollars into an investment fund managed by the company. In many cases, employers match your contribution. If your company does this, start contributing as soon as possible, even if it’s a small amount. You likely won’t miss the money deducted, and it will grow to a substantial amount over the years. If you change jobs, you can take your retirement accounts with you. If your employer doesn’t offer a 401K plan, consider setting up an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) at a bank or investment firm and contributing the maximum allowed each year.
Some employers will pay for all or part of your future study, especially if it’s related to your current work or your employer’s industry. In some cases, you’ll be required to work for a certain length of time after completing the degree for which the employer paid.
Employee assistance programs
Many employers provide counseling resources to help employees address problems like substance abuse, relationship issues, legal dealings or anything that may affect job performance.
Your employer will offer health insurance plans for which they pay a certain percentage and the rest will be deducted from your paycheck. You should carefully consider your options and choose the plan that provides the best comprehensive coverage for your needs, and ask your co-workers, neighbors and friends for recommendations. Also, be sure to use the benefits for regular preventative health physicals and teeth cleanings.
