Health insurance is a great package. Depending on what you select you have a variety of options for care. Vision, Dental and Health are all covered. Low copays.
There is no down side the benefits are great.
Great benefits for all full time employees.. I was able to have dual benefits until I turned 26 and loved it!
I was temporary so I didn't receive any benefits. From what I heard from the permanent employees, benefits made the low compensation worth the job.
The best thing about the benefits as an educator at LAUSD is your benefits start when you start. Certainly the time off in the summer for a teacher is a big plus. But there is paid and free training.
I did not get to enjoy any of the offered benefits by the district like most employees. My position was for students only; we were out of beneficial parties like these.
Did not get any benefits in my position as a bilingual teacher assistant. You need to be a student to be able to work as an instructional assistant and will not receive benefits.
Your company's 401(k) plan can help you begin building a tax-deferred retirement nest egg early (start now and you will truly be able to enjoy your retirement). Consider the percentage or dollar amount of company matching (if any) along with any defined maximum amount for either matching contributions and/or employee contributions. Also check the amount of time it takes to vest the company matching portion and whether there is a partial vesting during the interim.
The best thing is my fully paid Blue Cross Anthem insurance with only 10 dollar co pays for visits and almost no other co pays. I have great doctors and because the district pays so much for our health benefits if there is a problem they usually really help you out. There is a dedicated line for only LAUSD employees. Dental is ok but I have a great dentist so I fill in the gaps with my FSA account. If you have kids it is fantastic because benefits are fully paid for them too.
They don't offer us any benefits unless your a six hour teacher assistant in which many schools are eliminating because it so much cost for their school.
