ETS makes a variety of benefits available and encourages employees to customize their benefits plans to meet their needs. In addition to the competitive benefits listed below, see Work-Life Balance, Career Development Opportunities and Performance & Recognition for even more reasons why talented people come, stay and make a difference each day at ETS.
ETS offers medical, dental, vision and flexible spending accounts. Benefits are available to spouses, dependents and domestic partners, regardless of sexual orientation or marital status, as part of ETS's diversity efforts:
- Medical — ETS offers several medical plan options that can help protect employees and their families from the high costs of medical care. Depending upon state of residence, employees can choose from the following: Aetna Choice POS II®, Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) or Aetna Select HMO. Each plan includes prescription drug coverage. Employees also have the option to waive coverage.
- Dental — ETS offers two options: Delta Dental® Premier Advantage and Delta Dental Preferred. Employees who see a network provider receive lower rates under either option.
- Vision — The Vision Program provides access to accredited optometrists and ophthalmologists, and offers both in-network and out-of-network provider benefits.
- Flexible Spending Accounts — Through two optional flexible spending accounts, employees can reserve money on a pre-tax basis to cover out-of-pocket expenses for healthcare and dependent care. ETS contributes up to $1,000 annually based on salary for dependent care provided both inside and outside of the home.
ETS offers both 403(b) and 401(a) retirement plans:
- ETS 401(a) Retirement Plan — ETS contributes six percent of each eligible employee’s base salary to the retirement plan provided by TIAA-CREF®. Eligible employees are 50 percent vested after one year of service, and 100 percent vested after two.
- ETS 403(b) Match Plan — Similar to a 401(k) plan, ETS matches employee contributions up to three percent of base salary. The plan is provided by Fidelity Investments, and the account balance is always 100 percent vested.
