We want to help our employees succeed at home and in life, and our benefits program reflects our long-term commitment. CDS provides a competitive compensation and benefits package with choices designed to meet our staff’s unique career and lifestyle needs. We recognize that our team is our most important asset and that a “one size fits all” methodology will not meet everyone’s needs.
As a full-time employee of CDS, you will be eligible to participate in our comprehensive benefits program from your first day of employment. CDS provides a cafeteria-style plan that gives each employee $26,500 a year to spend on benefits. Whatever is leftover is yours to keep. Some of the company sponsored benefit programs included in the CDS benefits package are listed below:
- Comprehensive Healthcare
- Dental & Vision
- Prescription Drug Plan
- Short-term and Long-term Disability Coverage
- Life/Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)
- Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
- Vacation/Paid Time Off
- Holiday Pay
- Education & Training Assistance
- Flexible Spending Account
CDS has selected a “paired” Qualified Retirement Plan (QRP) administered by TD Ameritrade. This type of plan allows CDS employees to save up to an additional 25 percent on top of their salary tax-free.
The employee decides how the money in his/her retirement account is invested by selecting from over 13,000 mutual funds from leading fund families, bonds, Exchange Traded Funds (ETF), or individual stocks. We spent a lot of time searching for a plan that provides employees with an opportunity to put some money away for retirement and offers the greatest flexibility for growth.
As with everything else, you are part of the CDS Team from Day 1. Everyone is 100 percent vested the day they join the plan.
