6 Most Important Benefits in Your 30s
1. Contribute at least 6 percent to your 401(k).
If you do nothing else, do this. For every dollar you contribute, Intuit matches $1.25 to your 401(k), up to 6 percent. If you don’t participate, that’s like telling your boss you don’t want a 7.5 percent raise. Think about it. Enroll now.
2. Own a piece of Intuit and save for your future.
By enrolling in the Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP), you can set aside 2 percent to 15 percent of your total pay and invest it in Intuit shares—at a 15 percent discount! Whether you’re saving for a down payment on a house or already thinking about financing your kids’ educations, the ESPP is a great way to sweeten your savings strategy.
3. Call the doctor.
By using MDLIVE, a telemedicine service that’s part of your Intuit medical benefits, you can save money, time and a trip to the doctor’s office. At no additional cost to you, MDLIVE doctors can diagnose your symptoms, prescribe medication and even send the prescription to your local pharmacy all from the comfort of your living room.
4. Take care of your kids.
Even when you’re at work, your children are your No. 1 priority. By offering the dependent care FSA and backup child care programs, you’ll save money and get peace of mind of knowing that your kids will always get the best possible care. For their long-term well-being, enroll in the legal insurance plan to help protect their physical and financial well-being in case you’re not able to do so.
5. Choose wellness for life.
