  • 80/20 PPO Plan
  • High-Deductible PPO Plan
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Health Savings Accounts

401(k) retirement plan

The importance of saving for retirement cannot be understated, and Jackson's comprehensive 401(k) plan offered through Fidelity Investments provides a great way for our associates to meet their future financial goals.  In addition to dollar-for-dollar matching contributions (up to 6% of their salary), Jackson offers discretionary, non-matching contributions based on our financial results.

Full-time associates, part-time associates and interns can begin contributing to the 401(k) plan upon receipt of their first paycheck (and enrollment in the plan). Associates can contribute a portion of their annual salary on a pre-tax and/or Roth after-tax basis to a wide selection of investment options covering a variety of risk and return profiles.

Holidays, and paid time off

Jackson's holiday schedule generally follows the New York Stock Exchange holiday calendar and observes holidays accordingly. Our generous paid time off plan allows associates to request time for vacation, sickness and many other directions life may take them. Full-time associates are eligible to use their paid time off immediately and will accrue more time off with additional years of service.

Life insurance

We provide full-time associates group term life insurance generally equal to twice their annual salary.

Paid parental leave

Jackson provides up to four weeks of paid parental leave to full-time associates for the purpose of bonding following the birth of a child or the placement of a child with an associate in connection with adoption or foster care. 

The four-week paid parental leave program is in addition to Jackson’s Pregnancy-and Birth-Related Supplemental Short-Term Disability program. An associate who has experienced the birth of a child will receive 100% of their regular base salary for the period of the approved disability.

Paid time off to volunteer

It can be hard to volunteer when working full time. That's why we offer paid time off for all our associates who get involved with a charitable organization they are passionate about. We appreciate the time and effort our associates put into giving back to their communities, and do everything we can to support their volunteering activities.

Associate gift matching

To help associates make a greater impact on causes that are important to them, Jackson provides a corporate match to most nonprofits.

Associate and dependent tuition reimbursement programs

Our associates' commitment to hard work is matched only by their dedication to bettering themselves through education. Jackson offers employee and dependent tuition reimbursement to full-time associates.

Adoption assistance program

At Jackson, taking care of our associates and their family is always a top priority. We provide reimbursement to full-time associates for qualifying expenses for domestic and foreign adoptions up to $20,000 per adoption.
