    Complexity of healthcare packages are difficult to understand. Sign up times are at regular intervals through the year and staff is available to answer questions.

    Non-existent. Only have health insurance and maybe some vision (and it's not even thru NIH...it's thru some other agency because postdocs are not federal employees). No dental. No retirement. They don't even take taxes out of your stipend, so you have to pay the IRS quarterly.

    best: good pay, NIH gets government days off

    Postdocs get paid health insurance that is really good, but no retirement package. There is also access to dental that you pay for. Not sure about vision. Sick leave is good too.
