Voluntary Insurances

St. Barnabas offers employees the opportunity to take advantage of certain benefits offered by outside vendors through the ease of payroll deduction. Although St. Barnabas does not contribute on behalf of employees to these programs, the group rates may offer a discount as compared to the same coverage on an individual basis. We encourage you to make appropriate comparisons before reaching any decision on whether to participate. Some of these voluntary benefits include Supplemental Short Term Disability, Long Term Disability and Supplemental Life Insurance.
