The EDA holds its employees in the highest esteem—they are our most valuable asset. That's why we offer one of the most comprehensive compensation packages available.
Health Care Coverage
The EDA offers comprehensive medical, prescription, dental, and vision coverage.
Basic Life Insurance provides a benefit of 1 ½ times annual base earnings. Coverage of an additional 1 ½ times salary is available with an employee contribution of approximately ½ percent of salary.
Short-term disability benefits are provided for up to 26 weeks per calendar year. Long-term disability is provided at no cost to the employee, and offers a benefit of salary replacement at 2/3 of salary.
Paid Leave Time
The EDA offers paid leave time annually for illness (15 days), vacation (minimum of 15 days), and personal time (3 days). In addition, 12 holidays are recognized per year.
Tuition reimbursement is provided for approved work-related courses of study. Reimbusement is also provided for professional organization memberships.
Employee Assistance Service
Confidential counseling is available by an external service to help employees and their family members resolve personal or work-related issues.
Deferred Compensation Plan
Employees may set aside a portion of earnings on a regular basis into an investment account for retirement, which is exempt from federal income tax until withdrawn.
An account may be established with tax-deferred dollars to pay medical expenses not covered by insurance and for dependent care, both to a maximum established by law.
