Evaluate Your Benefits

Have you just been offered a job? Ask for a list of the included benefits.

To evaluate a benefits package, begin with these questions.

  • What benefit programs does the employer offer?
  • Are the programs offered important to you?
  • What do you need to do to be eligible?
  • Which benefit costs does the employer pay for?
  • Which benefit costs are you responsible for paying?
  • Does the company offer family coverage? Are there other family-friendly provisions?
  • Is there flexibility in working hours and in the use of paid time off?

Remember: you are not in a position to negotiate money or benefits until after you receive a job offer.
