MEDICAL, DENTAL, VISION

Lifeline Connections covers 75% of medical, dental, and vision costs for eligible employees and their dependents. Employees enjoy a medical plan with no co-pays or deductibles. Employees are eligible to enroll in the cafeteria style benefits plan on the first of the month following 60 days of regular full time employment.

CREDENTIAL REIMBURSEMENT

Lifeline Connections will reimburse any new hire for the total cost of required WA State credentials if paid within six months prior to hire date.  Additionally, all employees will receive up to $200 on an annual basis for professional license and/or credentials. Employees are also provided incentives to obtain both a chemical dependency professional and mental health professional credential.

TUITION REIMBURSEMENT

Lifeline Connections provides full and part-time employees tuition reimbursement to be used towards a pre-approved degree or certification program.

PAID TIME OFF (PTO)

PTO is provided by Lifeline Connections for the purpose of providing rest and relaxation for employees who work in a sometimes stressful social service atmosphere.  Accrual starts after three months of regular employment and is calculated based on the employee’s regular hire date.  Full time employees will accrue over three and a half weeks of paid time off during their first year of employment.*  Accrual rates increase proportionately with years of service.

Ten paid holidays and three personal holidays per year* are also awarded for employees to use at their discretion.

SERIOUS HEALTH CONDITION LEAVE

Serious health condition leave banks have been created to be used for serious illness or injury requiring 40+ hours out of the office with a physician’s note and can be used for self or family care. After completing the second year of employment forty hours* are placed in the employee’s serious health condition leave bank.  Employees accrue an additional 40 hours each year thereafter.

*Time off accruals are prorated for employees scheduled for less than full time hours.

FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNTS

Both the dependent care and healthcare flexible spending account allow employees to save money in taxes by setting aside a certain amount of their paycheck on a pre-tax basis to cover dependent and healthcare expenses incurred throughout the year.

RETIREMENT ACCOUNT

All employees 21 years and older are eligible to participate in the 401(K) and Roth 401(K) plans administered by Vanguard after 6 months of service.  Lifeline matches your before-tax contributions dollar for dollar up to 3%.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

Generous life insurance, AD&D, short term disability and long term disability policies are free to all benefit eligible employees.  Employees also have the option to purchase supplemental life insurance coverage for themselves for their dependents at discounted rates. Employees also have access to medical supplemental insurance provided by Colonial Life, legal insurance provided by Legal Shield and insurance for employee’s pets provided by Healthy Paws. The agency also participates in an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
