Employee benefits are not just about the kind of services you get, they are also about how much you may have to pay out of pocket. Washington state offers one of the most competitive benefits packages in the nation.
We understand that your life revolves around more than just your career and that your priority is making sure that you and your family will maintain health and financial security. That's why choice is a key component of our benefits package. We have a selection of health and retirement plans, paid leave, staff training and other compensation benefits that you can mix and match to meet your current and future needs.
Employees and families are covered by medical (including vision), dental and basic life insurance. There are multiple medical plans with very affordable monthly premiums that offer coverage throughout the state. Staff are eligible to enroll each year in a medical flexible spending plan which enables them to use tax-deferred dollars toward their health care expenses. Employees are also covered by basic life and long-term disability insurance, with the option to purchase additional coverage amounts. To learn more, visit the Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) website.
Retirement and Deferred Compensation
WaTech employees are members of the Washington Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS). New employees have the option of two employer-contributed retirement programs. For additional information, check out the Department of Retirement Systems ' website.
Employees also have the ability to participate in the Deferred Compensation Program (DCP). This is a supplemental retirement savings program (similar to an IRA) that allows you control over the amount of pre-tax salary dollars you defer as well as the flexibility to choose between multiple investment options.
Vacation (Annual Leave)
You begin accruing vacation benefits starting your first month of employment. Since we value your loyalty, the amount of vacation you can accrue increases the longer you work with us. Washington state generously supports members of the U.S. armed forces with 21 days paid military leave per year.
