We offer the second lowest tier of a high deductible health plan, and we cover 85% of the premium cost for employees who participate in our health insurance. To offset the cost of your deductible, we give you half of the annual deductible amount. We deposit it in your Health Savings Account (HSA), and if you don’t use it, the balance just keeps growing year after year.
With this optional coverage, you can get yearly exams, cleanings, and x-rays, as well as reduced cost on basic and major services.
Prein&Newhof will match your 401(k) retirement savings up to 4%. If you contribute 8% to your 401(k) account, Prein&Newhof will contribute 4%, so that your savings for the year would total 12%. Through Principal, we offer both a Traditional and a Roth 401(k) option for you to choose from. Our employer contribution ensures that everyone is a part owner of the company through our employee stock ownership plan (ESOP).
Our short-term disability insurance replaces 60% of your weekly salary in the case of injury or illness. Should your injury or illness last longer than 13 weeks, long-term disability will continue to replace 60% of your weekly salary.
