As the PCAOB continues to grow, we continue working to meet the needs and expectations of our employees by creating an environment and building a support system to help you be successful in your career and see to your personal well-being. When you know that you and your loved ones are covered by quality insurance plans, when you have the work-life benefits affording you the time off you need, the more you can remain focused on your work and the work of the PCAOB.
These are high-quality, competitive benefits tailored to our employees' needs and expectations. Periodically we review and modify our plans with the goal of continual improvement. As a PCAOB employee, you'll enjoy the following benefits, available to full-time and eligible part-time employees:
The PCAOB’s PPO plan (Preferred Provider Organization) helps you reduce out-of-pocket costs when you receive services from a network of participating health care providers. The plan also covers you, at a reduced rate, if you receive services from out-of-network providers.
Prescription drug benefits are part of your medical coverage at no additional monthly charge. You pay only a small copayment for covered medications. Mail order prescriptions for up to a 90-day supply are also available for additional savings and convenience.
Dental care coverage includes a broad range of services such as preventive care, fillings and restorative work, orthodontia (for children) and major services through the PPO network of participating providers. You also have coverage for services, at a reduced rate, if you choose a dentist outside the network.
You can elect a vision care benefit providing you and your family with coverage for eye exams, prescription lenses, contact lens evaluation and fittings, and elective procedures.
Flexible Spending Accounts for health care, dependent care and commuter transportation allow you to elect pre-tax deductions to pay for qualifying expenses.
The PCAOB offers a 401(k) retirement plan and company match. When you participate, the company matches your contribution dollar for dollar, up to 7 percent of your salary. You choose how to invest your money from a selection of mutual funds and pre-mixed portfolio strategies. There is no vesting period. Your personal contributions and the company-paid portion of the plan are yours immediately. Employees also may choose to make after-tax contributions and have an option to participate in a Roth 401(k) plan.
Long-Term Care insurance helps protect savings and covers a portion of the cost of care if you or a loved one suffers certain disabilities or chronic illness; it includes assisted living, nursing home and extended home care.
To protect your family and loved ones if you die or have a serious injury, the PCAOB offers group term life insurance and accidental death and disability insurance. Employer-paid term life coverage up to a certain amount is available at no cost to the employee. The PCAOB offers the option to purchase additional coverage.
Short-term and long-term disability coverage provides replacement income if you are unable to work because of an injury, illness, pregnancy, or disability.
The PCAOB provides employees 12 paid holidays and the ability to accrue up to 45 days paid time off for vacations, sickness, or to meet personal or family needs. The PCAOB also provides employees additional paid time off for parental, military and bereavement leave. Our PTO plan gives you the flexibility you need to balance your work and personal life.
The Employee Assistance Program is a comprehensive life-management resource, counseling, and informational support system available to you and your dependents.
The PCAOB International Travel Medical benefit covers you when you travel internationally on PCAOB business. It provides 24-hour multilingual customer service, pays hospitals and doctors directly, and is available at no charge to you.
