The company maintains a defined benefit pension plan on your behalf. After three years of employment you are vested.

Segal helps you accumulate funds for retirement through the profit sharing plan. Staff members are vested in the plan at a rate of 20 percent per year and are fully vested after five years. The plan has provisions for 401(k) pre-tax, Roth, and after-tax contributions. Segal provides a matching contribution. Segal also makes discretionary profit sharing contributions to eligible individual accounts, based on company profits 

Employees may direct pre-tax salary contributions, up to the IRS maximum into an account which can be used for health-related expenses not covered by the medical and dental plans.

Employees may direct pre-tax salary contributions (up to $5,000 per year) into an account which can be used for child and dependent care expenses incurred to allow employees and/or their spouses to work or attend school.

Employees are eligible for paid vacation based upon length of employment.

The company recognizes 11 holidays per year.
