Employee Benefits

Big Sandy ADD provides a wide range of benefit programs to eligible employees. Certain legally required programs (such as Social Security, workers' compensation, and unemployment insurance) cover all employees in the manner required by the laws.

Your eligibility for each benefit program depends on a variety of factors, including your employee classification. To better understand exactly which benefit programs you are eligible for, talk to your team leader.

The following benefit programs are available to eligible employees, subject to terms and conditions of each program:

* 401(k) Savings Plan

* Auto Mileage

* Business Travel Accident Insurance

* Cafeteria Plan

* Credit Union

* Deferred Compensation Plan

* Dental Insurance

* Educational Financial Assistance

* Family Medical Leave Act

* Flextime Scheduling

* Health Insurance

* Holidays

* Jury Duty Leave

* Life Insurance

* Pension Plan

* Sick Leave Benefits

* Tool and Equipment Assistance

* Vacation Benefits

* Vision Care Reimbursement

While some of the benefit programs we offer may require you to contribute to the cost, many programs are fully paid by Big Sandy ADD. We calculate that the benefits offered to a regular full-time employee cost Big Sandy ADD approximately 14 percent of that person's wages. Therefore, when you look at your total compensation, be sure to also consider our contributions to your benefits.
