Our Benefits

We believe that everyone counts and we count on everyone.

If you are considering a job opportunity with the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (Authority), we want you to know that pay only represents a portion of total compensation. The benefits available to you as an Authority employee can assist you while you are working and help you plan for a comfortable retirement. A typical benefits package with the Authority usually represents an additional 40-60% of compensation.

Here is a summary of the benefits offered to all regular, full-time employees at the Authority.

Health Insurance Program
The Authority currently offers four different healthcare plans for employees and their families. Employees may select from a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), High Deductible Health Plan with a Health Savings Account (HSA), a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)-Full Network or a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)-Narrow Network. These programs include an Employee Assistance Program and prescription drug benefits. We also offer separate dental and vision programs.

In addition, the Authority offers:

Basic Life Insurance Program
The Authority pays 100% of the premium for Basic Life insurance at a level equal to 1 to 2 ½ times Annual Salary based on the position classification. Supplemental and dependent coverage is also available.

Leave Programs
The Authority offers employees a generous Paid Time Off (PTO) program. We observe 13 paid holidays each year. Additionally, the Authority provides leave for an on-the-job injury or illness and provides for bereavement, court, and military leave. The Authority manages all leave programs in accordance with applicable state & federal law.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)
An FSA enables you to save money on certain health care and dependent care costs by paying for eligible expenses with pre-tax dollars.

Tuition Assistance Program
This program allows you to be reimbursed up to $5,000 per calendar year of your tuition expenses. Courses can be taken individually or as part of a degree program.

Commuter Transportation Program
To encourage the use of public transportation, mass transit and other environmentally responsible forms of transportation, the Authority offers eligible employees a subsidy to help offset select commuting costs.

Other voluntary benefits offered include: Long Term Disability, Long Term Care Insurance, Pre-Paid Legal, Employee Assistance Program, Wellness Program, and Deferred Compensation Savings Program

While finding a job that meets your career and salary goals is important, remember that the employer’s benefits package may make all of the difference.

The Authority’s health and life insurance, defined benefit retirement plan, long term disability, leave programs, flexible spending accounts, long term care insurance, tuition reimbursement, commuter pass reimbursement, and other miscellaneous benefits add up to a comprehensive and generous benefits package.

We hope these programs influence your accepting a position with the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority.
