SA - Benefits?

Postby wuduhel » Thu Nov 08, 2012 12:32 pm

Do SAs generally get benefits? My eyes are getting worse, but I'll hold off getting new glasses until the summer if I'll be covered then.

No, as far as I know there's no firm that gives benefits to summers. Eye doctor isn't covered by your school insurance?

Benefits or not, you can probably afford new glasses at SA pay....

I didn't think so, but I thought I'd check. I'm not on my school insurance plan.

Most long term interesting benefits (medical coverage, retirement benefits, transportation benefits) are often off-limits to summers. A lot of smaller "benefits" (corporate discounts/relationships - often from clients) can be available though.

Mid-law comes in all sorts of colors and sizes ― including $100K on up.

Your offer letter will tell you the answer...generally.

Hmmm that's something I haven't considered... COBRA would be like $1-2k a month for me with a family... That would suck...
