Consulting

Is it normal to ask about health insurance benefits of a company where you have an offer? Got an official offer but have no idea what the health insurance plans are like. Any smart tactful way to ask?

They usually send the benefits package with the offer letter. Totally fair to ask, benefits can be ~25% of your total comp.

Don't stop there. Ask if there are any other benefits you should be aware of to count as compensation.

Ask for a rundown of the full benefits package. Holidays+PTO or Holidays+Vacation+Sick or flex time. Pension Y/N and vesting path. Percentage match on 401K. Health insurance options. Etc.

Definitely ask for their Benefit Package Summary, otherwise how can you make a full comparison to current job?

Google this instead of asking about it. But if they already offered, then just send an email asking them

I don’t have the mental capacity to work. Took a day off after months since I was so irrationally stressed I couldn’t handle it. Possibly my first ever day off in my life due to mental health. How do go back to work tomorrow and pretend I’m all hunky dory when I’m not.. work has nothing to do with it. If anything it provides a happy distraction.
