One Work Benefit Is Still Awesome (For Now)

I’ve bemoaned several cost-cutting measures by my current employer that have had a negative impact on our finances. Specifically:

  • Suspension of employer matching to our 401(k)
  • No raises in 2009 or 2010
  • Up to 100% increases in premiums for health care in 2011

All in all, it’s been a pretty rough couple of years and definitely not what I had been projecting when you think of such things.  I think we sort of got used to the idea that we’d get a raise every year (or two years) and that health care costs, while increasing rapidly, wouldn’t effectively double.

Still, enough complaining.
