BENEFITS

I saw in another thread that someone mentioned paying $18 per paycheck for health insurance, which sounded like it was missing at least one zero. What is the monthly cost for a single person, married couple, or family? What does the company pay/provide?

Similar questions regarding LTD. What is the monthly coverage and cost? What is the standard/maximum income replaced? If you are on LTD are you still eligible for company health insurance?

Direct contribution to the 401(k) increases each year to 15% at DOS+4, what is the vesting process for those contributions? What types of investments are available with the chosen provider (funds, brokerage, etc)? To answer my own question, the Majors mostly do 16% direct contribution with some using A/B funds (FedEx, UPS,?).

Spirit is at/near the top of my list and it sounds like the benefits package is pretty decent, but I would love to hear the insiders' perspectives
