Sometimes an illness or injury causes you to miss more work than you’d like. Norton’s long-term and short-term disability plans are designed to provide peace of mind and financial security until you get back on your feet.

Short-Term Disability - Two coverage levels are available: 65% and 75% of pay.

Long-Term Disability - Employees receive automatic basic coverage equal to 50% of base pay at no cost, with an option to purchase 10% coverage for a total of 60% base pay.


Life Insurance and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D)

Taking care of your loved ones in the event of a tragedy is one of the most selfless things you can do. Norton Healthcare provides you with two types of coverage to help ensure your family’s financial security in case something happens to you.

Employee Life: Eligible employees automatically receive life insurance and AD&D coverage equal to their annual base salary as of their enrollment date and with each salary change at no cost, with a minimum of $10,000. Employees have the option to purchase supplemental life insurance up to four times their annual base salary. When this insurance is purchased, free will preparation services are available.

Spouse and Dependent Life: Norton Healthcare provides 10 options ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. You may also choose between three life insurance options for your child(ren), $2,500, $5,000 or $10,000.


Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

The FSA allows you to use pre-tax dollars to pay eligible health care and dependent care expenses that aren't covered elsewhere. There are two options available: Healthcare and Dependent Care. Deposits are made on a pre-tax basis, with allowable maximum amounts of $2,500 for the Healthcare FSA and $5,000 for the Dependant Care FSA. All employees who are statused as full-time or part-time are eligible.


Time Off Benefits

FlexTime:This benefit is designed to give you as much flexibility as possible when you need paid time off. FlexTime may be used for vacation, holidays, personal time or the occasional sick day. All employees who are statused as full-time or part-time who are scheduled to work at least eight hours a week are eligible.

Other Time Off Benefits: Norton Healthcare also provides time off for jury duty, family/medical leave, bereavement, military leave and personal leave.
